Diets are a popular and progressive topic that can be controversial. That’s probably even more so when it comes to athletes all over the world and what they eat locally and while away at competitions. This Infographic provides some diet and health related statistics, both general and for athletes, with an emphasis on those that competed in the 2012 London Olympics.
