Olympic Village Condoms Draw Fire

Salt Lake City, UT, Jan. 30, 2002 -- Christian activists protested the availability of free condoms inside the Olympic Village, which saw its first residents arrive this week.

Two protesters showed up for Tuesday's demonstration at the Delta Center. They disagreed with the Salt Lake Organizing Committee's decision to stock the village with 12,000 condoms, available at first-aid stations.

The Olympics should be about ``virtues, like the spirit of unity and sportsmanship, not recreational sex, not even safe sex,'' said Brandi Swindell, director of Generation Life, a group of college students, artists and musicians from Boise, Idaho.

SLOC spokeswoman Caroline Shaw said the International Olympic Committee does not require condoms be stocked.

``We consider it a good public health practice,'' she said.

The condoms were donated by Cardinal Health, the official Olympic drug supplier. Organizers of the 1998 Winter Games in Nagano did not provide condoms; organizers of the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney did.
