Hope Solo snuck a celebrity into her room after winning gold in 2008, but won’t say who
She said she was partying with Vince Vaughn, but didn’t say who the celeb she brought back with her was. It’s her “Olympics secret,” she says.
Solo and the women’s team then did the Today Show drunk the next morning
The organizers of the 2000 Olympics ordered 70,000 condoms. It was not enough
They had to bring in an additional 20,000 condoms to meet demand.
Now 100,000 are provided for every Olympics.
Ryan Lochte estimates that a massive 70-75% of athletes in the Village are having sex
“I’ve seen people having sex right out in the open. On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty.”

That’s a quote from Hope Solo.
Swimmer Amanda Beard said Olympians “walk around for miles trying to sneak somewhere” if they are given curfews
Skier Carrie Sheinberg said two German bobsledders tried to trade her their gold medals for “some group fun” at the 1994 Games
Said Sheinberg: “They made it clear that they’d trade me their gold for all kinds of other favors. I Said jokingly, ‘Thanks, but Tommy Moe has a medal. I’ll play with his.”
In 2010, six athletes had an orgy in a whirlpool at a house outside the Village
Germans, Canadians, and Austrians were involved.
At the end of the 2000 Games, the Australian team threw a bonfire and burned a bunch of furniture from the Village
The teens are involved too! Shawn Johnson and cyclist Taylor Phinney struck up a relationship in Beijing
Phinney would throw Johnson snickers bars from his balcony.
Next thing they knew, they were kissing in the lobby.
By the tail-end of the Games, athletes who are done competing stay out to 7 a.m., greeting still-competing athletes as they head to their events
At the 1976 Olympics, 16-year-old Greg Louganis cozied up to the Soviet diving team, and saw one married male Soviet diver hooking up with his teammate
As it turns out, all the athletes are insanely wasted during the Closing Ceremony
ESPN says all the athletes show up drunk, then continue drinking during the ceremony.
The party continues on the plane ride home
In 2000, on a flight from Sydney to LA, the flight attendants put all the Olympians in the back of the plane and the regular people in the front.
Breaux Greer ended up in the bathroom with a “famous Olympian he will not name.”
