People will tell you: you are what you eat. These people have obviously not meet global track dynamo Usain Bolt. The Jamaican is the fastest man alive. He’s also a won six gold medals. It’s an impressive haul. But, aside from sheer talent, how does he do it? Fear not, Usain Bolt is about to let us in on the secret: Chicken McNuggets.
Ok, round pieces of chicken may not be the key to Bolt’s success, but in his soon-to-be released autobiography, the sprinter tells the world of his Olympic eating habits. While in Beijing for the 2008 Olympics, the Independent reports, Bolt “powered to three gold medals fuelled by Chicken McNuggets, a total he now estimates to have reached 1,000 during his 10 days in the Chinese capital.” Here’s more from the Independent on the sprinter’s diet:
“At first I ate a box of 20 for lunch, then another for dinner,” he wrote. “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.”
The sprinter, who lit up the games, breaking three world records, claimed he only began eating the nuggets because he simply found Chinese food “odd.”
