Olympians discuss food and alcohol in Olympic Village


Sure, yes, the Olympics are great, but the stories that come out of it Town? It’s really something to look forward to every two years. And while I would love to chat with you about like all, you landed on this restaurant site probably because you want to know how athletes eat and drink once in the Olympic village. This I can do with you!

While there isn’t much information available yet on what the edible scene in Tokyo will look like in a few weeks (but rest assured, I’ll keep you posted when we know more!), We can do it. some predictions based on the experiences of two returning athletes. . Paralympic swimmer Mallory Weggemann and Olympic cyclist Alyse Willoughby spoke to Delish about their best times of food in the village … as well as what they’re looking to eat (and drink) next.


Please describe in detail the most delicious meal you have ever had in the village.

MW: Granted, I always ran throughout the Games, so I tend to keep it simple: pasta, chicken with rice and veg, etc.

AW: Our free McDonald’s frenzy the night after the competition ended in the village of London certainly hit the mark …

What are the must-sees in the Village that are still accessible?

AW: During the competition we usually don’t deviate too much from the norm because you don’t want an upset stomach, but the omelet station is usually a hit for breakfast.

What foods are you most looking forward to?

MW: I can’t wait to try more food options from other parts of the world; again, based on the competition schedules from previous games, I have made do with foods that are familiar to me.

AW: I really like the way they have food from all parts of the world readily available.

How is the availability of alcohol? Is there a drink you will only drink during the Olympics?

AW: They do not have – or at least I have never seen – alcohol available in the dining room of the Village. Thereafter, however, there are usually many options available for the team house celebrations that are definitely put to use. I’m not a big fan of Champagne, but when the time comes for a party toast, you go with it! And in Rio, well … One caipirinha, two caipirinha, three caipirinha, floor [laughs].

How to take advantage of it once your last event is over and you have some free time?

MW: In London as in Rio, my first stop was McDonald’s!

AW: Probably not the best for my body, but I tend to binge on these just as hard [aforementioned] goodies after the Games as I trained before the Games [laughs]!
