Why One Losing Olympian Decided It Was A Good Idea To Pound 8,000-Calories Worth Of McDonald’s

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.

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.

That update was two days ago. Should someone send help?
