Vodka in Water Bottles and Smuggled in Weed at the Olympic Village

A new book out last week, The Secret Olympian: The inside story of the Olympic experience claims "Their [Olympians] stories include post-competition wild debauchery from excessive drinking to over-the-top practical jokes to competition for the most number of hook-ups and even encounters with politicians’ flirty spouses."

Apparently penned by an anonymous ex-Olympic athlete, The Secret goes much further according to a NY Post article that says "While alcohol and drugs are banned at Olympic Villages, competitors often fill water bottles with booze and smuggle in weed and doping agents."

“When I’m there, I’m in two different gears,” says one female US Olympian, who spoke to The Post on the condition of anonymity. “I’m so focused that I see nothing else, or I’m partying my butt off...We could never be part of a reality show,” says the female Olympian. “The USOC [United States Olympic Committee] wants a particular image and brand.”

Rumor was that 70,000 condoms were given out at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia...and used up in a week. The story created so much buzz that even the athletes want to perpetuate the legend: “It’s a tradition — taking so many that they have to replace them,” says Todd Lodwick, the 35-year-old-five-time Olympic Nordic combined athlete and a two-time gold medalist. “It’s a myth: ‘Oh, look at all the sex these Olympians are having!’ ”

But the anonymous female says they do in fact have lots of love. “At the Olympic Village, they call it ‘Days of Glory,’ ” says the female athlete. These are the post-competition attempts to fill each remaining day at the Village with as much alcohol-drenched sex as possible. “You stay up all night and party, and you wait for McDonald’s to start serving breakfast at 4:30 in the morning,” she says. “You eat, sleep, then get up at 9 or 10 a.m. for press, and then you start partying all over again. Two years ago, it was Day 6 or 7 [of partying] for me, and I was like, ‘I quit.’ And they were like, ‘You call yourself an Olympian?’ ”

“The Secret Olympian” writes, “No matter what your type, the Olympic Village can cater [to] it, providing the best physical examples on earth . . . Having completed competition, the athletes need to do something else to burn off their boundless energy. Like thoroughbred horses which haven’t had a run for a while, they get frisky.”

And once the games are over and the US athletes eventuall head to Washington, D.C. to meet the president? They do it blitzed out of their minds.
