Bombing, don’t move
On the 17th, two days before the opening of the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympic Games, the Army’s 3rd Corps Military Police Corps Anti-Terrorism Special Task Force is conducting explosive terror situation response training at the Gangneung City speed skating stadium, the site of the opening ceremony.
Maybe condoms are needed more in the Youth Olympics than in the Adult Olympics.
1,803 youth aged 13 to 18 from 79 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) will participate in the 2024 Gangwon Youth Winter Olympics, which opens on the 19th.
It is difficult to look down on youth athletes because they are not adults.
This is the period when teenagers experience secondary sexual characteristics and become sexually curious, so systematic and reliable sex education is needed for teenagers.
The Youth Olympics, which promotes culture, experience, and education, has been distributing free condoms to participating athletes like the Adult Olympics.
Exhibition works that make the red dawn stand out
On the 17th, dawn is dawning beyond the exhibition works installed at Gyeongpo Beach in Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do for the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympic Games.
There were also reports that at the 2018 Buenos Aires Summer Youth Olympics, the organizing committee and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) distributed 144,000 condoms to 4,000 athletes to ensure a safe Olympics.
According to an official from the Korea Sports Council, the organizing committee also distributed condoms at the athletes’ village at the 2020 Lausanne Winter Youth Olympics.
However, sports association officials who recalled their experience at the time said that they did not receive condom distribution notices or location information at the athletes’ village set up on the campus of Gangneung-Wonju National University during the Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics.
Officials from Korea’s medical support team who met at the athletes’ village on the 17th also agreed that they had not heard anything.
In developed countries such as Europe, it is said that condom use is taught as a method of contraception during sex education.
The IOC, which has already observed the distribution of condoms at the Youth Olympics, also emphasized in response to Yonhap News’ inquiry, “Of course, they should be distributed (at the Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics) as well.” 19가이드03
