COREY BELLEMORE’S TWO BEER MILE WORLD RECORDS IN FOUR DAYS

Canadian Running - - GOLDEN SHOE AWARDS -

Just a few short years ago, it seemed like no one would ever break the elu­sive five-minute bar­rier for run­ning 1,609 m in­ter­spersed with chug­ging four beers. This sum­mer, Univer­sity of Wind­sor ath­lete Corey Bellemore took to a track on his own and de­stroyed the world record by 13 sec­onds, low­er­ing it to 4:39. That got him im­me­di­ate and well-timed global at­ten­tion, and he found him­self on a plane three days later to Lon­don for the Beer Mile World Cham­pi­onship. Jet-lagged and thrust into the spot­light, he de­mol­ished the com­pe­ti­tion and low­ered the mark once more to 4:34.
