Depending on their sport and how strenuous their training regimen is, Olympic athletes might consume as much as 10,000 calories a day while preparing to compete. But what about when they lose?
Australia's badminton team suffered defeat at the hands of Taipei over the weekend, leading at least one Olympian to seek out comfort food in the form of a massive McDonald's binge. As always, the fast-food giant has an outlet within the Olympic Village — and the food is given away to athletes for free, leading badminton player Sawan Serasinghe to order four ten-piece McNuggets, six orders of fries, two McChickens, two Big Macs, two hamburgers, and six brownies.
Serasinghe posted a photo of the feast — and his magnificent abs — to Facebook, writing, "Wow what a week it has been in Rio! Have to say I am disappointed about the match today ... Can't wait to go back home to start training and keep on improving! ... Now it's time to eat some junk food after months of eating clean!" Let's hope he's sharing that greasy fast-food feast, which clocks in at approximately 9,300 calories, with his teammates.
Of course, it's been proven that Olympic champs can be fueled by fast food too: At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, track star Usain Bolt famously ate 100 McNuggets a day. Bolt just reaffirmed his position as the world's fastest man by winning gold in the 100M last night; no word on whether or not he's been chowing down on free chicken nuggets in Rio, however.
