Free massage, condoms, e-pills and eye and dental treatment are part of the freebies awaiting Kenyans and other Olympians.
Participants at the games, which kick off in London in a fortnight, will also enjoy preferential transport treatment as they will be chauffeured on dedicated lanes abode sleek BMW 3 and 5 series vehicles.
Life on the fast lane for the Olympians will start at the Heathrow Airport where a temporary terminal will be opened to fast track their entry and departure.
Justice will equally be dispensed as fast for offenders with courts set to sit from the wee hours of the morning to late into the night to adjudicate Olympics-related crimes.
London Olympic Organising Committee (Locog) has announced they will provide free emergency hormonal contraception and condoms to women by postal order during the grandest sporting bonanza.
Just in case kit
The “Just in case” kit has been launched by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service to help avoid unwanted pregnancies during the games, when significant transport disruption is expected in London, which may make it harder to access emergency contraception.
The kit will be obtained by filling in an online form and will be delivered to women’s homes after a telephone consultation with a nurse.
Following reports that London will be “flooded with prostitutes”, Britain’s top health agency has advised visitors to practice safe sex to ensure protection against any sexually transmitted infections.
“We want everyone to enjoy the games safely and by taking practical steps like ensuring good hand hygiene, being up-to-date with routine vaccinations and practicing safe sex, it will help to ensure everyone stays healthy during this worldwide spectacle,” Justin McCracken, chief executive of the Health Protection Agency said.
Locog has announced they will give out a record 150,000 condoms for use during this year’s games to 10,000 athletes who will be in the village for 15 days. Durex, a top-selling condom brand, will also provide free condoms for athletes, along with information about safe sex.
