15. Wait Until Results Are Official Before Going on a Food Bender
Who: Thomas Hamilton-Brown
Olympics: Berlin 1936
South African boxer Thomas Hamilton-Brown wasn’t a good loser at the 1936 Games. After dropping a controversial lightweight decision Chile's Carlos Lillo, he did what many people do: he ate his feelings. Unlike most people, though, he gained five pounds overnight. And unlike everyone else in human history, he was declared the winner of an Olympic event the next day when a judge reversed the decision, but because of the five pound food bender, Hamilton-Brown couldn’t make weight and was disqualified. Imagine if this happened today? And we thought the Pacquiao-Bradley decision sucked.
