For those of you who might not know, condoms are handed out like candy at the Olympic games. It’s been reported that roughly 150,000 condoms are at the games for athletes in Tokyo.

As I’ve predicted, none are coming out, but I didn’t expect one to be used to fix a kayak!

When competing at the highest level of sports, you often need to be adaptable. Being able to adapt is what separates the losers from the winners.

However, I don’t think anyone expected a condom to be needed to save a kayak. Yet, that’s exactly what happened and it clearly worked very well.

Props to Fox for her quick thinking and using the tools around her to win the day. You just love to see it!
