What does Usain Bolt do to make him the world’s fastest man?

Olympian Usain Bolt estimates he ate 100 chicken nuggets a day while in Beijing for the 2008 Summer Olympics in his new memoir, “Faster The Lightning.”

The New York Post reports that he didn’t like the food in China, so instead opted for his favorite snack of McDonalds chicken nuggets. The trim runner wrote, “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.”

Somehow with that crap diet, he managed to grab gold in the 100-meter, 200-meter and 4×100-meter relay, breaking the world record during those first two events.

He also reveals that he had an unorthodox outlook on his relationship with fellow Jamaican runner Mizicann Evans. The two dated from 2004 until 2011. He said that there was a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in place with cheating.

He wrote, “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.” He said this couldn’t be helped because, “I was able to get any lady I wanted . . . I could walk into a party and take my pick. I would go into a club and think, ‘Hmm, a’ight, which one? You . . . ? You . . . ? Oh, you! Let’s do this.'”

Classy all around.
