The beer mile competition is getting serious! Less than 24 hours after Australian Josh Harris broke the world record with a 4:56.2, Canadian Lewis Kent ran a 4:55.8 on Aug. 7. Both results are pending verification by beermile.com.

Kent’s splits were roughly 0:70, 2:28 and 3:43 while chugging four 12-oz beers before each lap of the four laps around the track.

Kent is one of several runners training for the Beer Mile Classic on Aug. 22 in San Francisco.
