Hope Solo, the gold-medal winning women's soccer player, has blown the lid on the rumored raging parties and sexual exploits of the world's most respected athletes during the Olympics.
Ms Solo detailed her and her competitors adventures off the field and in the Olympic Village, saying the entire women's soccer team was completely wasted when they appeared on the Today show in 2008 after winning the gold medal.
'I've seen people having sex right out in the open. On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty,' she explains in the latest issue of ESPN magazine.
After taking home the 2008 gold medal in Beijing for women's soccer, Ms Solo and her teammates made a brief appearance on the Today show.
The women smiled and spoke succinctly, but Ms Solo revealed that their demeanor was more linked to the fact that there were drunk from the night before.
She also said that that right after the game she sneaked a celebrity into her room.
Refusing to identify the lucky fellow, she did admit that she and her teammates had partied it up with actor Vince Vaughn earlier in the night.
The star goalkeeper calls that detail her 'Olympics secret.'
Her comments still pale in comparison to javelin competitor Breaux Greer, who told the magazine he had sex with three women every day at at the 2000 Olympics.
He said that the sex was the only way for him to keep his calm during the competition. Two of the women were fellow Olympians, a pole vaulter and a hurdler, while the other was just on vacation.
It seems the organizers of the event know very well what's going on and in 2000, they packed the place with 70,000 condoms. It wasn't enough, however, and they had to order 20,000 more. Now, 100,000 condoms are on hand every year.
Skier Carrie Sheinberg told the magazine that nothing is sacred at the Olympics. She said that in 1994, some German bobsledders tried to trade her their gold medals for some 'group fun.'
'They made it clear that they'd trade me their gold for all kinds of other favors. I said jokingly, "Thanks, but Tommy Moe has a medal. I'll play with his,"' Ms Sheinberg said.
Other players told ESPN that orgies are common place as are all kinds of debauchery. It is even a tradition for athletes to be wasted for the closing ceremony, drinking before, during and after the seminal event.
