Asafa Powell Says “Big ting of condoms” Offered to Athletes Plus Noah Lyles Talks on Paris Olympics’ ‘Anti-Sex Beds’

In the latest episode of his podcast, retired Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell and American sprinter Noah Lyles shared their thoughts on the beds featured in the athletes’ village for this year’s Paris Olympic Games.

This year’s Olympics in Paris, France, will see the athletes snoozing on beds made from recycled cardboard. While the organisers of the sporting event have denied that they are being used to prevent competitors from having sex, they were quickly dubbed “anti-sex beds” after they were unveiled.

During last week’s episode of The Fast Lane Lifestyle podcast, Powell, his wife Alyshia Miller-Powell, Lyles, and his girlfriend, Jamaican athlete Junelle Bromfield, discussed the controversial bed choice. Lyles expressed how contradictory it is to have these anti-sex beds when they are still handing out condoms at the Olympics.

Agreeing with the contradiction, Powell also highlighted that while there are some athletes still in their teens, most of the competitors are adults, some even in their forties. Lyles and Bromfield went on to share that they have rules when it comes to fraternising at sporting events.

According to Bromfield, despite staying at the same hotel at last year’s World Championships, they never slept together in the same room. Lyles added that there are a lot of people who enjoy themselves outside of the sport that they are participating in at the Olympics, as they may never attend another one.
