With the London 2012 Olympics fast approaching, Delivery Hero got curious about what top athletes eat. At the Melbourne Olympics in 1952, Australian sprinter, John Landy, scoffed a couple of meat pies and a chocolate sundae less than two hours before breaking the world record. Hard to imagine that lunch being ok’d by sports nutritionists these days!

It’s also the time of year when a night out carries a little less attraction, especially when it’s 15 degrees outside and pouring down. You could always force yourself to brave the torrential rain, or you could stay at home, order in something delicious and relax. To help you make the right decision Delivery Hero has put together a little list of 5 Reasons to Stay In & Order Takeaway:
1.) You’re Not As Good At Jumping Over Puddles as You Think You Are
Everyone holds onto beliefs about their own abilities that often do not stand up to the test of reality, but let’s get this one out of the way.
