Lewis Kent is very good at doing two things extremely quickly: He can run. And he can chug a lot of beer.
Kent, a Canadian college student, set the world record in the “beer mile,” in which competitors must chug a 12-oz. beer, run 400 meters, and then repeat that three more times — without “losing their beer” in the process.
So, naturally, I interviewed Kent for Men’s Fitness. We talked training methods, the most important characteristic in a champion beer-miler, and why he prefer blondes—or at least one particular blonde.
