Another mile record

As the 60th anniversary of Roger Bannister's world record breaking sub 4 minute mile approaches on 6th May, I have noticed a number of athletics magazines such as Athletics Weekly are quite rightly preparing to celebrate the great event.

However, one of the more stranger celebrations must be the first ever sub 5 minute beer mile.  This honour goes to James Nielsen who ran a mile in 4 minutes 57 seconds, while drinking a can of beer after every 400m lap. You can see the record broken here
