Olympic Village -- More Sex than Woodstock

8/24/2008 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Guess this is what happens when chiseled, half-naked Olympic athletes hole-up together in one place.

Former Olympian Matthew Syed, who now works as a commentator, wrote for the Times of London, "This sex fest ... [happened] right here in Beijing. Olympic athletes have to display an unnatural ... level of self-discipline in the build-up to big competitions. How else is this going to manifest itself than with a volcanic release of pent-up hedonism?"

Syed said that winners "as geeky as Michael Phelps" were sought after by the female athletes, but that losers get their share as well.

Matthew says he "got laid more often in those two and a half weeks (at the Barcelona games in '92) than the rest of my life up to that point." And he was freakin' table tennis player!

Guess a little ping-pong goes a long way sometimes ...

This is nothing new. I was dating a member of our Olympic team during the Montreal Olympic s in 1976. It sounded like one big international orgy and that is based only on what he was willing to tell me.

wasted days and wasted nights    

To think that back in the stone-age, before video games, people played ping-pong. And some played so much of it that they got so good they could go the Olympics as a ping-pong player. And that wasn't geeky? Dude should know better than to dis Michael like that.

Never heard of him, guess he is craving publicity. Too bad he doesn't understand what a real athlete is. I would take Phelps the geek over a ping pong player any day, what a dork!!

Hey Spellcheck,

"Loser" is the antonym of winner, often used as an insult.

TMZ's spelling is correct.

Get a life...

No. 12, I don't know what spell checker you are using but whatever it is you need to dump it or turn it on. One of the definitions for loose in Webster's dictionary is sexually promiscuous (which doesn't make sense with that paragraph), but it generally means inexact, to set free, not firm. The point in that paragraph was that winners were not the only ones getting laid, those that LOST their competition were also getting lucky. If you don't believe me, get a dictionary and look up lose versus loose.
