Outsiders, do you feel like you live an exciting life? Well, wait until you hear how athletes stay rather busy at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Susen Tiedtke, who competed in the 1992 and 2000 Olympics as a long jumper, talked openly about the athletes’ bedroom activities in an interview with BILD.
During her Olympic runs, Tiedtke claimed, coaches said sex before competing wasn’t a good idea because “when you have sex, the body first has to recharge itself energetically.”
2020 Tokyo Olympics May or May Not Be Following Similar Path
But once an athlete was done competing, Tiedtke said, many had sex, sometimes into the early hours of the morning. This may or may not be happening at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, though, due to COVID-19 precautions.
“After the competition, however, roommates were considerate if you needed the room for yourself …” she said.
“You always heard the ‘party’ of the others,” Tiedtke said. “Sometimes you could hardly sleep.”
She also added that “there is one party after another, then alcohol comes into play.”
“It happens that people have sex and there are enough people who strive for that,” Tiedtke said.
Two-time gold medal-winning American soccer goalie Hope Solo told ESPN in 2012 that it was happening.
“There’s a lot of sex going on,” Solo said. “I’ve seen people having sex right out in the open. On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty.”
Now we don’t know for sure if athletes attending the 2020 Tokyo Olympics are having lots of sex. Again, there are a number of health precautions put in place. But Olympic athletes are human and, well, we’ll have to wait and see if anyone has tales to tell like Tiedtke and Solo.
American Surfer Carissa Moore Makes History By Winning Sport’s First Gold Medal
Professional surfer Carissa Moore did her part to add gold among those medals.
On Tuesday, July 27, Moore made history on the Olympic stage for millions to witness. The Team USA surfer became the first person ever to win a gold medal in surfing at the Olympics Games.
According to NBC News, Moore, from Hawai’i, was at one time the youngest world champion surfer. Moore beat South Africa’s Bianca Buitendag with her score of 14.93 to Buitendag’s 8.46.
Surfing is evaluated on a scale of 0.1 to 10.0. Each surfer rides a wave, then receives an evaluation after the performance by a panel of judges. They take out the high and low scores of five collected scores. What’s left is averaged out for the surfer’s total score.
