Those condoms they give Olympic athletes have never come in handier than they did for Australian kayaker JESSICA FOX. The nose of Jess’s kayak got damaged, and she had to repair it with something called a carbon finish. Fox and her team slapped a carbon finish on the front of the kayak. Needing something to hold the mixture in place, they used a condom to wrap the nose.
