London: At the Olympics, where Durex has been assigned with the responsibility of supplying condoms to athletes for greater protection, organisers failed to prevent pranksters from bringing their own ‘Australian’ prophylactics.
Durex has signed an exclusivity deal with LOCOG to provide condoms to the athletes.
However, pranksters brought bringing in a bucket full of ‘Australian’ prophylactics labelled “Kangaroos condoms, for the gland downunder,” with a picture of a boxing kangaroo.
LOCOG provided a record 150,000 anticipating a far busier fortnight than in Sydney 12 years ago, when 20,000 extra were provided when the initial supply of 70,000 ran out.
“We will look into this and ask that they are not handed out to other athletes because Durex are our supplier,” the Daily Express quoted a spokesman as saying.
