|Disqualified For Not Drinking Enough
Corey Bellemore of Windsor, Canada, had set a new world
record for the fastest time to finish the Beer Mile World
Classic, but he barely had time to savor his victory —
officials reversed the decision and offered him up a foamy
glass of bitter defeat.
According to race officials, Bellemore – who remains the
fastest contestant to ever finish the Beer Mile World Classic
after his record-setting time of 4:33 in 2017 – didn’t
manage to drink enough beer while racing around the
track. He was DQ'd by only 1/2 oz.
The race tasks each contestant with drinking a total of four
12-ounce beers before hitting the finish line – one at every
quarter mile – but Bellemore reportedly left more than four
ounces (total) in bottles along the route, effectively
disqualifying his run, which clocked in at 4:24.
According to BeerMile.com, Bellemore left about 4.5
ounces, or a half-ounce more than was permissible.
The second-place finisher, British runner Dale Clutterbuck,
was awarded the win with a time of 4:47..

The women's race did not have thedrama that the men

the required amount of beer and more.
