Tom Daley Wants You to Know What the Olympic Village Condoms Look Like

Tom Daley Shows Off Box of Condoms Given To Olympic Athletes

Set to the beat of "Industry Baby" by Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow, Olympic gold medalist and crochet stan Tom Daley took to TikTok to show off the bounty of prophylactics given to each athlete competing in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Fresh off his gold medal performance in the men’s 10m synchronized diving event, Daley and his fellow Team Great Britain diver Noah Williams were apparently amused by the box of the free condoms handed out to all athletes at this year's Summer Games. According to Japan Today, local officials said they intended to distribute over 160,000 condoms to athletes at the Olympics this year. And apparently, they made good on that intention.

Following a quick look at the flyer that accompanied the condoms, the TikTok shows Daley and Williams seated together, before panning to the grand opening of a box stuffed solid with a variety of individually wrapped condoms. The camera then pans up to show Daley expertly licking an unsheathed lollipop while looking directly, knowingly, coyly into the camera.

While the cardboard cornucopia of condoms seemed like an invitation to the athletes to go out and celebrate the old fashioned way, a quick look at the flyer accompanying the condoms reveals that they weren’t intended for actual use during the Olympics, but instead were to be taken back home and used as tools to increase awareness about the dangers of unprotected sex.

"We encourage the athletes to bring them back to their respective countries to help raise awareness on the importance of preventing sexually transmitted diseases and the use of condoms as a preventive measure," a statement read.

Daley is happily married to Oscar-winning screenwriter and activist Dustin Lance Black, and the pair are together raising their young son Robert Ray Black-Daley, so it would seem Daddy Daley has little need for the condoms presently.

His focus now is on the upcoming men’s individual 10m platform diving event. He already took home the gold for Team Great Britain in the synchronized 10m platform event, but there's a chance Tom could win another medal.

"I still can't honestly believe what is happening," Daley said last week after winning his first and only Olympic gold so far. "That moment, being about to be announced as Olympic champions, I was gone. I was blubbering."

Daley, 27, first competed at the Olympics (in Beijing) back in 2008 when he was only 14 years old.  He had previously won bronze for the solo 10m platform event in 2012 in London, and another bronze for the synchronized 10m platform event in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, but this was his first time taking home Olympic gold.

So far, there’s been no word from the IOC as to whether the free condoms will empower the users to perform faster, higher, and stronger together back home.
