Blogger Tries to Eat Like Michael Phelps

If you can't swim like Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, what makes you think you can eat like him? Jon Henley of The Guardian attempts to eat Michael Phelps' breakfast and lunch on video and inevitably fails. It's no wonder considering what he tries to eat:

A small (rather than gargantuan) portion of porridge; half a doorstep-sized sandwich made of white bread and butter and containing a fried egg, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise (Phelps hoovers up three); half a five-egg omelette; one slice of French toast (out of three); and two choc-chip pancakes (out of three). Plus two cups of coffee.

Henley does put in a good effort—until he gets that, "I'm going to throw up," look on his face.
