Trucker completes day 35 of Olympic Breakfast relay

Barry Wilson from Rotherham has just completed day 35 of his London 2012  Olympic Breakfast relay.

The 43-year-old trucker is on a 70-day tour of the UK, stopping at every Little Chef en route to put away a full Olympic Breakfast comprising two rashers of bacon, a pork sausage, two fried eggs, mushrooms, sauté potatoes, black pudding, an extra large portion of beans and a griddled tomato, washed down with a pot of tea with free refills, four slices of toast and a handful of boiled sweets from beside the till.

Speaking from his latest stop at a Little Chef just outside Lytham St. Annes, Mr Wilson said he was ‘delighted’ to have made it to the halfway mark. 

Then, taking his flask, three Mars Bars and a copy of The Sun, he headed for his regular 30-minute weight loss exercises, in the third cubicle along in the gents, nearest the hand dryers, pausing to announce: 

‘I’m here to prove that with true British stamina, the Dunkirk spirit and a vanload of statins, I can confidently answer that famous Olympic question: ‘what have you done today to make you feel proud?’.
