A ‘Real American Hero’…

nielsenTwo-time NCAA 5000 meter champion James “The Beast” Nielson has apparently become the first person to break the five-minute barrier in the Beer Mile. For those not familiar with the rules, at the end of laps 1, 2, and 3 the runner has to down a beer. James Nielson claims to have broken the ‘world record’ for the event finishing in 4 minutes 57 seconds. A video is making the rounds. He said he trained for a year before his world record attempt. I wonder what the record is for drinking beers while watching him run the beer mile?  Maybe that’s a record I could go for!
