Beer Mile - New American Record by Nick Symmonds


The World Record Beer Mile Attempt       
Nick Symmonds finished fifth in the 800 meters finals at the Olympics in London. Then when he got home in Oregon, he took a crack at the world beer mile record. Yes, there is a world record in the beer mile, where participants chug a beer between each lap of a mile run. According to Beermile.com, the current record for the feat is 5:09. Sadly, Symmonds came in at 5:19. He still holds the American record, but Canadians rule the world rankings.
 

 
What is a Beer Mile?

In the vast world of extreme sports, there exists a sub-culture at its heart best known as "digestive athletics." The most famous, glorified, respected, and celebrated of all the events of this underworld is the Beer Mile. The foundation of any true beer mile is built upon two things: drinking beer and running a mile.

The most common format of the beer mile requires a single participant to drink a full-sized beer, run a quarter mile, then repeat the process three times. This results in the consumption of four beers and the running of four quarter miles (hence the beer mile). The entire process is timed. The total time is often used as a measuring stick of competency.
