It wasn’t a great week for Australian badminton player Sawan Serasinghe. After he and his teammate lost to a Chinese Taipei team in the final showdown in Rio, he said goodbye to the 2016 Olympics (and his heretofore impressive abs) in a very American way: by choking out his emotions with junk food.

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 toward 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! 😀
Serasinghe’s caloric revenge consisted of six burgers, six large fries, 40 chicken nuggets and six brownies. The Telegraph pegs the dainty meal at more than 8,000 calories.
Fortunately for Serasinghe, he didn’t have to exert too much of his digestive energy finding this mess; McDonald’s is an Olympic sponsor with an outlet in the Olympic Village, where athletes eat for free.
“Now it’s time to eat some junk food after months of eating clean!” his, as of this writing, most recent Instagram post reads.
