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