Grevers, who won gold in the 100m backstroke and a silver in the 4x100m freestyle relay, who headed straight for the nearest McDonald's, where he ordered a vanilla milkshake. 'It was delicious,' he added.

The same was true for gymnast John Orozco, whose pre-Olympic training diet consisted of lean meats and vegetables.

Orozco went big and ate pizza, chicken nuggets from McDonald’s,' and 'a big cookie. The 19-year-old paid a bit of a price for his exuberance: 'After that my stomach was destroyed,' he said.

After his gold medal performance in shooting, Jamie Gray collecting his medal, and headed straight to USA House, where he treated himself to a steak, cooked rare.

'It was awesome. They didn’t have it in the buffet so the chef made it and brought it out himself.'
