It seems like the food they serve in the Olympic village in Vancouver is really bad.
First it were Alexei Morozov and Semyon Varlamov who complained about the food in the village. According to Morozov the players had to eat in McDonald’s. He also said that with food like this they would “turn up their toes”.
Then it was Ilya Bryzgalov who called the food “terrible”.
Now it’s Team Russia coach Igor Zakharkin who calls Russian officials for help.
“We can’t stand it anymore. It is time for our officials to step in. Our players can’t recover eating the food they serve in the village. It’s not tasty and low in calories. It’s some semi prepared foods! We don’t want it to have an impact on our team”, said Zakharkin to Vitaliy Slavin of Sovetskiy Sport.
