World Record ‘Beer Mile’ Broken By Canadian Dude. C’mon America!
This gives "going on a beer run" a whole new meaning. A Canadian college student named Lewis Kent can drink beer really fast, almost as fast as he can run. Earlier this week he did both and now he holds a world record and an endorsement deal.
The 22-year-old ran a beer mile in an incredible time of 4:51, breaking the previous record by six seconds.
Many of the previous record-holders in the beer mile are also Canadian. What's up with that, eh, America?
The beer mile is run by completing four laps around a track and chugging an ice cold Amsterdam Blonde at the start of each lap. Shoemaker Brooks Sports was just as impressed as everyone else and they offered Kent a two-year deal to endorse their running shoes.
