Rio Athletes PIG OUT On McDonald's

Watching the Games in Rio and seeing the perfect specimens that are the competitors performing amazing feats of athleticism, we forget that at the end of the day they are actually still regular people who after training for four years to get to the Games, may feel the need to just slob out!

And this has been highlighted by the amount of free McDonalds the athletes have been eating at the village. The fast food chain has had to CAP the amount of food each athlete orders to 20 ITEMS, but they can order MORE if they want to line up again!

Aussie badminton player Sawan Serasinghe decided it was time to up his calorie intake after being knocked out of the competition over the weekend.

Wow what a week it has been in Rio! Have to say I am disappointed about the match today. We definitely had a good chance to stretch the match to three sets toward the end of the second set but couldn't close it out. We would have loved to end our first Olympic campaign with a win against a much higher ranked pair. Although having said that, there are lots of good things to learn from the matches in the last three days playing against more experienced pairs. Can't wait to go back home to start training and keep on improving! Just want to say thanks again to everyone back home for the on going support. Definitely motivated me to fight hard on court everyday! ❤️ Now it's time to eat some junk food after months of eating clean! 😀

And while Usain Bolt has captured world headlines with his amazing performance in the 100 meters, his appetite for Macca's is also making news!

Bolt famously admitted that at the Beijing Games he was eating 100 McNuggets A DAY!

In his autobiography Faster than Lightning he wrote:

“At first, I ate a box of 20 for lunch, then another for dinner. The next day I had two boxes for breakfast, one for lunch and then another couple in the evening. I even grabbed some fries and an apple pie to go with it.”


And he still won three gold's at that event!

Maybe we should all get a McHappy Meal to see if that can make us run as fast as Usain???
