Frisky foursomes and athletes begging for sex: What really goes on behind the Olympic Village walls?

The Olympics Games are over and the athletes are likely to be indulging in a well-earned rest. As the thousands of international competitors head back to their respective countries, they will reflect on their success in the Olympic stadium, pool or velodrome…and in many cases, the bedroom.
A high profile member of Team GB has revealed an exclusive insight into the athlete world of sexual activity behind the walls of the Olympic Village. Home to 10,500 athletes, the anonymous athlete has revealed that the village became a perfect spot for athletes wanting to intermingle with other nationalities and relieve themselves of competition stress…in the form of naughty antics.
He explained: 'People often think that because you're an athlete you have to behave a certain way,' he says. 'And of course, when we are competing, we are very well behaved. But once our events are over, we need to let our hair down.’
Within the village, teams from different countries are segregated in different parts. Everyone is walking past each other, meeting athletes from different countries.’
'They'll start off just swapping pin badges, or some kit. Then as the event progresses, you start visiting other people's dorms, exchanging Facebook or Twitter details and telephone numbers. It starts from there.'
He further stated that for athletes with early events or for those that haven’t succeeded in the heats, free time takes over the agenda, often in the form of boozing and partying.
'In the second week, it starts getting more exciting,' he reports. 'That is when a fellow Team GB athlete and I arranged to meet a couple of Ukrainian athletes from the track and field team who wanted to have a night out in London.’
'I got us on the guest list at Mahiki, and the cocktails were flying. There was lots of dancing. I kissed one of the girls – a pretty blonde field athlete with big blue eyes.’
'We invited them back to our dorms for some more fun, and ended up leaving at around 1am to go back to the Village.'
Despite not being allowed to take girls from other teams back to their dorms, the Team GB member explained that security would usually turn a blind eye in the hope they would be rewarded with pin badges or free kit.
'We snuck the girls into our quarters after I ran upstairs to get the security guards some pins,' he says.
The athlete revealed that just minutes after the four entered the Olympic accommodation, they found themselves entering into a very steamy situation.
'My friend took one of the girls to the bedroom we shared, while I started kissing the other one in the sitting room. She had an amazing body, obviously, and she was hardly wearing any clothes – just tiny hot pants and a small top.’
'Just a couple of minutes after we'd started kissing, she stripped off and stood there totally naked. .’

Things progressed as all four of the athletes engaged in sex acts in the communal sitting room in the athletes' dorm.
What is more surprising is that the Team GB member indicated that this sort of situation was not a one-off. A record 150,000 condoms supplied to the athletes during the Games imply that this sort of activity is expected- that’s 15 condoms for each person for the duration of the 17-day Games!
And the Team GB member isn’t the only sportsperson that has spoken out about the Olympic shenanigans. According to Hope Solo, goalkeeper for the gold medal-winning American women's football team, ‘There’s lots of sex going on at the Olympics’.
Recalling the 2008 Beijing Games, she added: ‘I’ve seen people having sex out in the open, getting down and dirty on grass between buildings.’
With sparsely clad athletes walking around the village the Team GB man explains that sexual activity is inevitable. He further highlights the fact that the majority of athletes are single, thanks to their intensive training programmes involving five to six week camps, a factor that makes it ‘almost impossible to hold down a relationship’.
But shockingly, he reveals that even for the athletes with partners, it’s very much a “what happens on tour, stays on tour” mentality.
'You could have slept with a different woman every other night of the Games if you wanted to. More if you had your own room, like some of the athletes did.’
'In fact, some of the more arrogant athletes would say they could have a woman from a different country every night of the Games.'
Star of the party and triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt even had to employ security during his celebratory party to keep the swarms of girls away.
'It was as if they were on heat,' the Team GB man says. 'Usain was DJing on the decks, and there were women everywhere throwing themselves at him.'
According to the Team GB athlete, sprinters have the reputation as being the biggest womanisers within the sporting arena and are most likely to find themselves in the company of different women every night of the games.
'The sprinters are the worst,' he says. 'Partly because they are well-known.
'But they like to go to strip clubs. Personally, I think it's sad to waste £20 on a dance with a woman you can't touch.’
'Unless you're a high profile sprinter, being an Olympic athlete is not like other sports where you're a recognised face.’
He added: 'You can't use it to get girls. I'm not the best looking guy around, nor am I the worst – but girls seem to like my accent. I find it opens doors, along with my ability to come across confident rather than arrogant - there is a fine line.’
And the biggest female flirts? The swimmers, apparently, followed by the track and field athletes.
'The swimmers are all but naked in the pool all day, and the girls are staring at men in Speedos,' he said. 'It's no surprise they're up for it.
'It's all the blue collar sports where the athletes are more likely to be up for a good time – athletics, swimming, boxing. The kind of sports that anyone can get into.'
The athlete warned that the least likely to 'put out' are those from the so-called 'upper class' sports – in particular equestrian and rowing: the sports dominated by wealthy people from private schools.
'They are the most reserved. Those girls will say that Mummy and Daddy say they aren't allowed out, that they have to be in bed early,' he says. 'You can waste hours talking to a rider or a rower – she'll never come home with you.'
His top pulling tip? Find out what sport the girls do early on so you don't waste your time. ‘Avoid anything horsey or rowers’, he added.
The Team GB member confirmed media speculation surrounding Olympic athlete involvement with Illicitencounters.com (Britain's largest marital affairs dating website, with over 700,000 members). The website offered athletes free membership during the Games – and he took advantage.
'Most members are married and looking for a fling,' he says. 'I'm single, but it suits me – no strings attached. I had so many emails during the Games, it was incredible.'
Despite the Games drawing to a close the athlete stated that many of the sportsmen and women who hooked up during the event are likely to stay in touch. 'That's the beauty of social networking,' he says. 'And when the Commonwealth Games comes around, the fun can start all over again.'
