The fastest man on the planet has a new tell-all book coming out entilted: Faster Than Lightning. That title sounds pretty goddamn misleading because, ya know, I doubt that. The rest of the book, however, is said to be filled with truths about Bolt's time at the top. From his Bejing diet to his ex-girlfriend's ability to look the other way, Bolt dishes all the shit.
According to the NY Post, Bolt's diet in Bejing looked something like this:
During the Beijing Olympics, Bolt, then 22, thought that Chinese food was “odd.” So he hit the nearest McDonald’s in search of his favorite food: chicken McNuggets.
“At first I ate a box of 20 for lunch, then another for dinner. The next day I had two boxes for breakfast, one for lunch and then another couple in the evening. I even grabbed some fries and an apple pie to go with it,” he writes.
He estimates that during the 10 days he spent in Beijing, he downed 100 nuggets every 24 hours. That equals 1,000 chunks of chicken. “Man, I should have gotten a gold medal for all that chowing down,” he writes.
Bolt may not only be the fastest man on earth, he might even have the one superpower I've longed for: the fastest metabolism known to man. I mean, HOLY SHIT. If I ate just one 20-piece it would take me a week's worth of working out to undo all that damage. So envious. So, so, SO vey envious.
And on his sex life, which is impressive by laymnan's standards:
Bolt was spoken for when he arrived in Beijing, already dating his first serious girlfriend, Jamaican runner Mizicann Evans, for five years.
But after becoming an overnight sensation, he found that the “ladies threw themselves” at him, he writes.
“I was able to get any lady I wanted . . . I could walk into a party and take my pick,” he writes. “I would go into a club and think, ‘Hmm, a’ight, which one? You . . . ? You . . . ? Oh, you! Let’s do this.’ ”
So, how did the couple last?
“We had one rule: If I was doing my thing with someone else and Mizzi didn’t know, then she was cool. But if she found out that something had happened between me and another girl, then that person had to go,” writes Bolt.
The couple has since split.
How do you let a girl like that go? Or maybe it's her mind that left her when she realized just what the fuck she was doing and she got to steppin'.
