Michael Phelps Eats Entire Menu for Breakfast

Monday, August 11, 2008

If you watched the little special NBC had on 'America's Best Athlete' Michael Phelps this evening (probably one of hundreds they run) you learned that Phelps is not only a swimming machine but an eating machine. By order he is supposed to consume between 8000 and 10,000 calories a day (which makes him the best friend of Ann Arbor Restaurant owners). Take that Dr. Atkins. After the segment was over Bob Costas ran through what his typical breakfast is.

"...Three sandwiches of fried eggs, cheese, lettuce, tomato, fried onions and mayonnaise, add one omelet, a bowl of grits, and three slices of french toast with powdered sugar, then wash down with three chocolate chip pancakes." Costas

If this whole swimming thing doesn't work out he just might have a future giving Kobayashi a run for his money.

If I ate that for breakfast my arteries would slam shut. Then again, Phelps gets a wee bit more activity in his daily routine than I do.

He made Six golds at the 2004 Olympics. Seven golds at the 2007 Worlds. Michael Phelps will enter eight races in Beijing within reach of multiple records, including most career Olympic golds (9) and most golds at a single Games (7).

And now Phelps wins 400m, takes gold and breaks his own world record in the 400m IM.

see Michael Phelps 2008 Olympic Winning Moment Photos

Would he takes 8 Gold medals this time?

The record of gold medals in a single Olympics is held by USA swimmer Mark Spitz, who has seven. Phelps has the opportunity (and ability) to win eight gold medals in this Olympics, which would give him the title of most gold medals won during one Olympics. He already has the most gold medals for any Olympic competitor (across two Olympics.)

He's a machine. He can eat whatever he wants and as much as he wants while still breaking world records.
