December 18, 2007-Victoria. B.C.
Under rainy and blustery conditions, the mighty Jim Finlayson set a new beer mile World Record last night on the Oak Bay track in Victoria B.C. at the 4th Annual Dave Smart Beer Mile. Abiding by all of the Kingston rules, Mr Finlayson clocked an incredible 5 minutes and 9 seconds for this celebration of beer and running.
The Flying Finn, drinking Granville Island Winter Ale, bested his own previous world record by 11 seconds and moved ever closer to the elusive sub-5 minute mark, once described as unattenable.
