Usain Bolt 'Always' Eats Fast Food After Winning a Race
The Jamaican sprinter made headlines in 2013 after admitting he ate 1,000 chicken nuggets during the Beijing Olympics
The Jamaican sprinter made headlines in 2013 after admitting he ate 1,000 chicken nuggets during the Beijing Olympics, but his massive consumption of processed food does not appear to have been a one time thing.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Bolt says his victory meal tends to be the same after every race. “As long as it’s fast food, I’m fine. I think that’s the only time I get [it], because most of the time it’s always late [when we finish] so we always stop at a fast food place,” he says.

The fastest man alive recounted his famous Beijing binge in his autobiography, Faster Than Lightening. “At first, I ate a box of 20 for lunch, then another for dinner,” he writes. “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.”

Eating in large quantities also happens to be the G.H. Mumm Chief Entertainment Officer‘s tactic for curing a hangover.
“Just eat as much food as possible,” he says, adding that he doesn’t get hangovers as much as he did when he was younger. “That’s what somebody told me to help soak up that alcohol, so when I was younger that’s what I usually did. As soon as you wake up, just keep having food and drinking water.”
