Summer Olympics: America’s Athletes Are Food Lovers

Slide 1 of 11

Many of this year’s Olympic athletes are also gold medal cooks. Here, some of their food obsessions.

Allyson Felix—Track and Field

Three-time track and field medalist Allyson Felix is a baking addict; her specialties include German chocolate cake and cinnamon rolls. She tries out new recipes on her training group, where she’s earned the unofficial title of “team chef.” But she’s also committed to healthy eating, serving on President Obama’s Council for Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.
