During a pandemic, the issue of security in the Olympic village comes first, and the authorities are doing everything to demonstrate the effectiveness of the measures taken. Sometimes it turns out not quite adequate.
At every Games, sex in the Olympic Village invariably becomes a topic of discussion. Some, however, wonder how athletes who managed to get to the Olympic Games can be distracted by such “trifles”. However, everyone has their own attitude to such a pastime.

And no sex, please, to “avoid unnecessary forms of physical contact.”

Last Thursday, the organizing committee of the Games announced a positive test for one of the athletes who arrived (country and sport are not specified), he must go through a 14-day quarantine. The first case of a positive test was recorded among athletes. On Friday morning, the Australian national team lost two athletes – a basketball player and a tennis player. The British tennis team has lost the main Olympic hope: Dan Evans withdrew from the competition after a positive test. And the problems seem to be just beginning …
