Olympic Gymnast Hotseated on Condom Use
Welcome to Rio Danell Leyva! You didn't even know you'd be here a few short weeks ago, but then your US Teammate John Orozco succumbed to an injury and as the alternate, you got to punch another Olympic ticket! Congratulations, and welcome to the show!
But you want to know what the first thing the world press asks him about in the informal Q&A during the bizarre and oftentimes SuperBowl-like atmosphere of pre-games week? That question was about Condoms!
The media wants to know if the Olympic Village might run out of condoms -- we are assuming for some reason they are looking for an athlete to say whether there will be MORE or LESS sexual activities taking place during the two weeks of the games than, say, last year? The actual exchange came out much more hilariously than can be imagined...
