Olympians are gorging on free Big Macs, so McDonald’s is capping orders at 20 items

U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps is famous for his 12,000-calorie-a-day diet that includes an entire pizza, a pound of pasta and three fried-egg sandwiches. Ryan Lochte ate McDonald’s for nearly every meal during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, where he won four medals.

So it should come as no surprise that one of the most popular places in this year’s Olympic Village in Rio de Janeiro is McDonald’s. MCD, -0.49%

For athletes and coaches, the McDonald’s restaurant in the Olympic Village is completely free. But it’s also gotten so popular that the restaurant decided this week to limit to 20 the number of items that one person could order, according to The Washington Post.
