Hope Solo, the former “Dancing with the Stars” beauty, has revealed some secrets surrounding the 2008 Beijing games, saying that the sex obsessed athletes will need a lot of condoms.
A soccer star and Olympic gold-medalist explained that the sportsmen sometimes complete marathon sex sessions with multiple partners and other athletes say orgies are common at the Olympics as well, writes The National Ledger.
“I’ve seen people having sex right out in the open,” Solo told ESPN in their magazine’s ‘Body Issue.’ “On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty,” she continued.
The Olympic champion went on, saying: “Steve Byrne, the comedian. And at some point we decided to take the party back to the village.”
She added: “So we started talking to the security guards, showed off our gold medals, got their attention and snuck our group through without credentials- which is absolutely unheard of.”
Solo revealed that the athletes booze it up as well. “Athletes are extremists,” she said.
“When they’re training, it’s laser focus. When they go out for a drink, it’s 20 drinks. With a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you want to build memories, whether it’s sexual, partying or on the field.”
Solo also discussed the level of partying that some young athletes do while at the event, particularly after a big win.
After the U.S. women’s soccer team won the gold that Olympics, the buff and beautiful U.S. gold-medalist said her teammates went on an all-night bender with actor Vince Vaughn.
“When we were done partying, we got out of our nice dresses, got back into our stadium coats,” at which point, she says, they went on live television, still drunk.
By the way, Hope Solo is not the first person to openly discuss the “sex fest” that is the Olympics. Four years ago, former Olympian Matthew Syed also opened up to the Times of London how the Olympics and intercourse go hand-in-hand.
“Olympic athletes have to display an unnatural … level of self-discipline in the build-up to big competitions. How else is this going to manifest itself than with a volcanic release of pent-up hedonism?” Syed wrote at the time.
“This sex fest . . . [happened] right here in Beijing,” a past Olympian and table-tennis champion now working as a commentator said.
American javelin thrower Breaux Greer confessed that he had sex with three women a day during the Olympics twelve years ago.
Skier Carrie Sheinberg also told reporters that German bobsledders offered her their gold medals in exchange for sex.
John Godina, an Olympic shot putter, has recently revealed that athletes are at the Games to work hard, but that they’re willing to play a little, too.
“Athletes go there focused and once their job is done, they have fun,” Godina said. “They don’t necessarily go there looking for it, but things happen … you learn not to ask a lot of questions.”
