Barry Wilson from Rotherham has just completed day 35 of his London 2012 Olympic Breakfast relay.
The 43 year old delivery driver is on a 70 day tour of the UK, stopping at every Little Chef en route and eating a full Olympic Breakfast with two rashers of back bacon, a pork sausage, two fried eggs, mushrooms, sauté potatoes, an extra large portion of beans and a griddled tomato. A pot of tea with free refills, 4 slices of toast, butter and marmalade and a handful of those yellow boiled sweets from beside the cash register.
Speaking from his latest stop at a Little Chef in a layby on the A584 just outside Lytham St. Annes, Mr Wilson said he was delighted to have made it to the half way mark.
'People said it couldn't be done' said Mr Wilson between deep breaths. 'But I'm here to prove that with true British stamina, the Dunkirk spirit and a van load of statins, we can combine a greatness of drive and a greatness of girth to achieve the greatness of our British heritage in a Great British breakfast'.
And as Barry Wilson prepares to begin the second half of his Olympic relay, he takes his flask, 3 Mars Bars and a copy of today's Sun newspaper and heads for his routine 30 minutes weight loss exercises, in the 3rd cubicle along in the gents, nearest the hand dryers.
