Olympic qualifiers pulled over sex toy ads


Adverts for a sex toy company plastered over the ice at qualifiers for the Beijing Olympics curling competitio­n have prompted Japan’s national broadcaste­r to pull matches off the air. NHK had planned to show all of the Japanese mixed-doubles team’s matches at the qualifying tournament in Leeuwarden, in the Netherland­s. But am advert for Dutch sex toy company EasyToys prompted a hasty rethink, with NHK pulling the plug on Japan’s opener against the United States on Sunday.
