With a line out the door and each person ordering so many items, the kitchen is getting backed up. Athletes are reportedly allowed to ask for more than 20 items if they need to, but their order drops in priority to anyone ordering 20 items or fewer "adding minutes to the already hefty wait."
What does a 20-item order look like? Serasinghe's 8,000-calorie gluttonous outburst was just over that threshold. For athletes like him, it's a small indulgence after going so long eating clean to do their best in Rio. Others say they're ordering an indulgent spread to bring food back to teammates. Either way, that McDonald's is getting worked.
