In an interview with GQ, Usain Bolt admitted that while his biggest craving is for hot wings, he usually ignores it and instead thinks very carefully about exactly what his body needs to perform.
“During the day I only eat just enough to have energy for training and to make sure I digest fast enough. But at nights, before I go to sleep, I consume a lot of food,” he told Luke Darby, of GQ. “My coach wants me to eat a lot of vegetables, so I do eat more of that than anything else.”
Broccoli may not be more appealing than hot wings, but it’s apparently one small part of the formula for being the fastest person in the world.
