Eat (a lot) to Win?

Hi folks, I am doing a sprint Tri this morning and taking a break from a major post. For a little brain candy, see this article on how much some Olympians have to eat just to get the calories needed to keep training by Gretchen Reynolds in the NYT.

Next week there will be more on genetics and elite athletes, high tech training, what the great coaches have in common, and just how fast Usain Bolt is.
