Sex before sport doesn't spoil chances

SEX IN THE VILLAGE: US football goalie Hope Solo has said she saw
people having sex on the grass in the Beijing Olympic village.


The ancient Greeks believed athletes should avoid sex before sport, but modern Olympians and scientists are torn over the merits of in-competition coitus and whether abstinence enhances performance.
For years coaches and athletes have practiced abstinence the night, or even weeks before, a big event, although all bets are off when the medal ceremony is over - 150,000 condoms are handed out to the 10,500 athletes competing at the London Games.
Boxer Muhammad Ali reportedly went without sex for 6 weeks before a big fight, and during the 1998 soccer World Cup, the then English coach Glenn Hoddle famously forbade his squad from having sex during the month-long event.

Experts say the long-standing ''no sex before sport'' myth has yet to be explored fully, however. Most research has been based on the physiological impact and, so far, having sex has not been found to reduce physical strength, power or endurance.

BEFORE sport is fair enough...I guess? :40

But if it's DURING sports.... not so good :13

You can spill your beer and at times not see the TV screen at all! :31
