"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 towards 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!"
As revealed by Australian swimmer Melanie Wright, McDonald's gives away food for free in Olympic Village.
"At the beginning of the Olympics, the lines are short with a few weightlifters, track and field throwers and marathon runners frequenting the Big Macs," said Wright. "But by the final few days when most sports are finished, they can barely keep up as each athlete lines up to order 27 cheese burgers, 40 chicken McNuggets, 12 sundaes and a Diet Coke before collecting the food and walking away without needing to pay."
McDonald's first started catering to Olympians in 1968 when the fast food chain flew burgers out to Grenoble, France so American athletes could satisfy their hamburger cravings during the Winter Olympics. Now, McDonald's is the official restaurant of the Rio Olympics.
It may seem a bit strange that the world's top athletes are lining up to gorge on famously bad-for-you food, but American swimmer Kevin Cordes put it best when he said, "It breaks the monotony. You feel comfortable and happy eating. You get to relax, and slow down a bit.”
