Olympic Medalist Yohan Blake's Secret to Success
Olympic Medalist and World Champion Yohan Blake has shared his secrets to his success in becoming the second fastest man in the world. The secrets: training, music, and bananas.
Blake says that he eats 16 ripe bananas every day as part of his diet. He says that bananas help restore the potassium he has lost from sweat during his intense training sessions. It seems to have paid off. He came second only to Usain Bolt in the 100M and 200M races.
He still has a chance to get a Gold Medal in the 4X100M relay, which is tonight in London. With Bolt this time on his team, I wouldn't bet against it.
