Apparently, Olympic cyclists are the heaviest drinkers in London. Either that, or they have the weakest tolerance, but another western European is making headlines for taking his celebration to the intoxicated extreme.
Belgium’s Gijs Van Hoecke got obliterated in London’s club scene after finishing 15th, and thankfully he only finished 15th. His body couldn’t have handled a medal finish. He had to be yanked out of the bar, toes dragging, and brought back to his room. Belgian officials sent him back home due to his actions like a kid at summer camp caught blasting heaters behind the cabin.
And judging by these photos, he either got too drunk to control his bladder or just decided the restroom line was too long and TFTCed in his pants. I hope it was the latter, just for the story. Hoecke has no regrets.
