Allison Grace Morgan Breaks Beer Mile World Record Thanks to Superior Drinking, Chris Robertson Gets AR at 2020 Beer
Covid-19 forced the best beer milers in the world to compete virtually in 2020 for $8,000 in prize and bonus money, but the virtual format did not stop American Allison Grace Morgan from Bend, Oregon from breaking the world record by running 6:16.5 to break Liz Herndon’s previous best of 6:17.8.
Morgan got the pending world record by being amazingly consistent and super fast on her chugs. Only third out of the first beer drinking zone, she was very consistent the rest of the way. Her other chugs were unofficially timed in 13.2, 15.0 and 15.4 seconds while her laps were 80.6, 81.4, 85.0 and 77.0 to just get the world record.
Overall, Grace Morgan spent 52.4 seconds drinking whereas Herndon spent 82.3 seconds drinking when she set the previous record. Grace Morgan’s fastest lap was 77.1 whereas Herndon’s slowest lap was 76.6, but that didn’t matter as Grace Morgan’s superior drinking got her the world record.
Fellow American Elizabeth Laseter had a 10 second PB to finish second and give the team Queens Cup to the Americans (top 2 places for each country).
