The current beer mile world record holder, Canada’s Corey Bellemore, won his first-ever FloTrack World Championships on Saturday in Austin, Texas.
The event involves running four laps of a 400m loop, drinking 4 beers in total. Both world records (men’s: 4:34.35, women’s: 6:08) remain untouched after this year’s event.
On the women’s side, American Allison Grace Morgan, crossed the line in a new world record time of 6:07.2 but was later DQ’d for having too much beer left in the four bottles. Evidently, Caitlin Batten was named the FloTrack Beer Mile World Champion because of the disqualification earning US$2,500 for the win.
