Every Olympic gold medalist has his or her ownway of winding down after an event, and Simone Biles’ favorite post-competition ritual is feeing some good old fashioned pepperoni pizza. Olympians, they’re just like us.
No matter if she wins or loses, she rewards herself with the cheesy goodness. She even has a shirt exemplifying her undying love for the pies 😛 TAGEND
She literally does this after every rivalry she competes in. That’s a lot of pizza and someSERIOUS DEDICATION.
When requested information about her pizza addiction, Biles told ABC,
It doesn’t even matter if I don’t win a self-gold, after every gratify I have pizza.Pepperoni pizza.
Earlier this week, we learned fellow OlympianMichael Phelps alsolikes to guzzle down carbs after a race.
Right afterthe most decorated Olympian in historywon his 23 rd gold medal in the4 100 race, he literally feed onepound of pasta. Yes, you read that right. One whole pound.
It’s no secret that Olympians can eat an insane quantity of calories every day due to the amount of exercise they get( you know, the whole exercise-to-calorie ratio ), but Simone isn’t all carbs all the time.
She makes sure to eat a banana before she competes in order to get in some potassium before she shows the worldwho’s boss. But thatstill doesn’t change her is committed to pizza.
She got teammate Gabby Douglas in on it too 😛 TAGEND
Simone Biles and the rest of the Final Five just got way cooler, in my opinion. I didn’t even thinkthat was possible.
Anyway, I hope she was able to find some pepperoni pizza in Rio because she has a tonof celebrating to do.
