BEER MILE WORLD RECORD SMASHED BY CANUCK
James Nielsen, a two-time NCAA 5,000-meters champion and Canadian, smashed the beer mile world record over the weekend with a time of four minutes, 57 seconds. He is 34.
It takes a special brand of idiot to be gifted enough to break the world record—IAAF World Championship silver medalist Nick Symmonds attempted it in 2012 and only mustered a 5:15. The former record of 5:09 was set by Jim Finlayson in 2007.
