Weird jobs can be found all over the world. But during the Rio Olympics 2016, the world saw not only weird, but ridiculous jobs people do during this globally significant sporting event.


Life Guards

Lifeguards are normal sightings in pool and other swimming facilities. But lifeguards in a competition with the world’s best swimmers would look ridiculous to many. Placing lifeguards beside some of the world’s most elite swimmers may seem odd to many, but Brazilian law requires lifeguards stationed at any swimming facilities as big as where major swimming events are being held, the Huffington Post reported.

Condom Guy

Would you believe that personnel are actually being dispatched every day to give out free condoms to the athletes? Yes, that’s true. In Rio Olympics 2016, at least 450,000 condoms will be rationed to athletes—that’s 42 condoms per athlete.
