    Isn't Mill Str. Organic <5% (4.2%) and thus not compliant with WBMF rules? Record controversy brewing?
    http://millstreetbrewery.com/core-brands/original-organic-lager/
    Bottle also isn't 355ml

    8. Beer must be a minimum of 5% alcohol by volume. Hard ciders and lemonades will not suffice. The beer must be a fermented alcoholic beverage brewed from malted cereal grains and flavored with hops. For an abbreviated list of valid beers and exceptions, click here.

    Note: he drank Kingfisher for his WRs apparently.

    I watched his 4:34 again and roughly timed the portions he was running and not drinking the 4 beers. He ran 4 flat. That's 4 minutes for a mile and 34 seconds +/- to down 4 beers.

    Incredible record.

    Since this guy had a swim background as well, does anyone know if Corey will try the Triathlon after he finishes running? I believe with his frame, he could be more successful than Sanders.
    Come on Corey, if you want a real Challenge, qualify for 70.3 Worlds in 2017, and race the best Pro's in the Triathlon. You definitley would stand a chance.

    It's important to note with these calculations that you're only really timing 1560m of the full mile. That's pretty significant, because at 4 minute mile pace the extra 49m are worth about 7.5 seconds. So in reality he's running closer to 4:08, and gets a few quick breaks, still incredibly impressive.

    I'm calling 2017 as the year Bellemore breaks out-- and not in the beer mile. I say he goes full-CPT and runs 1:45-point/3:34-5.

    As for the beer mile, I see it as an abuse of the two things I love most-- running and beer. (But, Bellemore's record is pretty mind-blowing.)

    No I'm timing his 4 laps. It's approximate but a lot closer to 4 flat than 4:08.

    LOL dude chirpin about 8 seconds when he ran a 4:34 beer mile.

    Are there any equivalency tables yet. What's a 4:34 beer mile worth? Low 3:50s in the mile for sure.

    If you were timing the full lap than it would be 4:34? Not sure where you went to school.

    A "real challenge"?

    Corey is trying to qualify for Tokyo 2020 in the 800/1500 and with the way he is progressing looks to have a very realistic shot at it. How is the Olympics not a "real challenge"?

    Should read, if pro triathletes want a real challenge they would try and qualify for the Olympics in athletics, or cycling, or swimming. That;s where they will find the best of the best.

    Let's play a game of would you rather?

    Would you rather compete at an Olympic Games and have an average result and be forgotten about in a few years after the Games, or would you rather compete at a World Championship and possibly stand on the podium? If Corey can swim well since he had a competitive background as a kid and put some focus into the biking and can run off the bike the man would surely could be a threat.

    But obviously he can do whatever he wants. If it's Olympics he wants to qualify for, so be it. Or he could focus on Triathlon the next 10 years and be a potential Beast.

    Not all 'World Championships' are created equal.

    Are you suggesting the 70.3 Triathlon WCs are at all comparable in depth and top level competition as the OGs in one of the top three specific events (100m, 1500m, marathon)?

    70.3 is only a 'half Ironman', it isn't even the full event!

    G&M columnist Stephen Brunt had an item post-Sydney 2000 that made the case that Sullivan's 5th place in the 1500 was probably the best Canadian performance of the Games, even beyond Whitfield's tri gold.

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/incoming/sullivans-finish-stands-out/article25472630/

    Of course anyone can do what they want. For example, if you wanted a real challenge, you'd be coaching athletes through their peak performance years, not picking off low hanging fruit by getting 10 - 14 year olds winning elementary school medals.

    Why are you just assuming that he would have the same level of talent as a swimmer and cyclist as he does running?

    Because competitive swimming is mostly a big mans sport.
    If the guy has a background he probably has great feel for the water. Because of his aerobic engine he would surely be able to swim fairly quickly if he put in the training.
    As for cycling, just look at some of the greatest ever Time Trialists or look at the Long Distance Triathletes good on the bike (Dave Zabriske 6ft, Fabian Cancellara 6ft1, Marino Vanhoenacker 6ft1, Jan Frodeno 6ft3, Andrew Starykowicz 6ft1, Andreas Raelert 6ft, Chris Lieto 6'0, Torbjorn Sinballe 6ft2, Chris Hoy 6ft, Tony Martin 6ft1, Bradley Wiggins 6ft2 etc. etc).

    Bellemore has the attributes, and I'm sure if he tackled Triathlon he'd do quite well at it.
    70.3 would give him the best opportunity.

    Sullivan raced some of the greatest of all time in 2000. Corey will not race the best of all time in Tokyo. Sullivan had Ngeny, El Guerrouj, Lagat (3 of the greatest of all time). Bellemore wants to be remembered for more than Beer Miles he would get himself in touch with Sanders and train for the Half Ironman Worlds, and as he ages he can move up to Ironman and potentially be the next Peter Reid who was 6'3 and a 3x Ironman World Champion.

    You guys are also speculating that Bellemore gets fast enough and wins at trials.
    I'm using common knowledge and previous statistics to back up what I believe may be possible. Has Bellemore broken 3:40(1500m) or 1:45 (800m)? You can't just assume he will do this in 4 years. He can try, or he can go give Triathlon a shot and see for himself if he'd make a good Triathlete. At least Darlington and Woodfine tried. And we all know what's happened with Sanders since making the switch (Ironman World Record for Ironman Sanctioned Events).

    Again with the elementary athletes.
    Seriously, that is getting quite old.

    I'll coach athletes through their peak performance years when I get the opportunity to do so. Until then I have no choice. I've proven myself enough with the kids. I'll work my way up the ladder slowly.

    I know what's neccessary for males and females on the CIS stage.

    Men
    600 in 1:18 or faster
    1000 in 2:25 or faster
    1500 in 3:49 or faster
    3000 in 8:20 or faster

    Women
    600 in 1:28 or faster
    1000 in 2:47 or faster
    1500 in 4:15 or faster
    3000 in 9:30 or faster

    Just keep laughing.
    I don't know what I'm talking about.

    Now back to Bellemore please.

    Why can't one 'assume' he can break 3:40 in 4 years (especially given his existing 800m and 10km XC accomplishments)?

    It's a safer assumption than yours that he could be successful in Tris when he's only performed at a top level in 1/3 of the events.

    You always have a choice, don't kid yourself. It's just a matter of whether you want the challenge. (And no, saying that no club or varsity program will offer you a job doesn't mean you have no choice.)

    Pro Triathletes are not scared to test themselves.
    http://www.bbc.com/sport/athletics/22342557

    And he wasn't the first or the last to try.
    If you knew, Top Triathletes will race in 5 sports sometimes 6 or 7 to get most comfortable by competing out of their comfort zone.

    Here's another example. Read his bio fully.

    https://www.teamusa.org/usa-triathlon/athletes/Andy-Potts

    And since you really got under my skin, I'll show you the most famous one of them all. A top triathlete enjoys being a Jack Of All Trades.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sFkAhs4vAsk

    If you guys never said Bellemore had a swim background, I never would have had this bright idea for him to potentially transfer his talents over. (If running doesn't progress to where he would like over the next couple of years Triathlon may give him another opportunity).

    Do you ever read back what you've written? Ever??? Corey, is a beast in the mid-distance...think 800-1500. What about that to you suggests that he would make an amazing 70.3 guy? The fact that he had an unknown (to you and I) amount of swimming success (again, we don't know the distances he excelled in) as a teen? It's like saying "gee, Eric Gillis is pretty good at that marathoning thing, and he has a solid background running shorter distances. I bet he could beat Warner in a decathlon. He should drop everything and work on his sprints and throws."

    Anyway, I agree with Oldster, I bet we see a big break-out year for Bellemore, the kid is a champ!

    Now that's just an outrageous comparison.
    Decathlon and Marathon racing have nothing in common.
    Whereas Corey has shown he is successful at both the middle distances and XC, he has both the speed and endurance.
    And I'm telling you based off experience and thousand hours spent at pools that a man of Corey's size can be pretty fast in the water, if he had a competitive background. Based on his aerobic capacity the man could probably swim 2km in like 24min.
    I am willing to bet that if Corey tried Triathlon he would have immediate success without any specific training, and if he trained the way Sanders has trained, Corey could be even better.

    He definitley should continue running, but I do think other options should be presented to him. Even if he continues to improve in the 8 and 15, there are tonnes of other guys to also compete against for these spots.

    The guy may even be able to make the Olympic Team as a Triathlete in 2020 if he tried it out and if he could swim 16-18minutes for 1500m in open water.

    Make up your confused mind!

    Should he do the Triathlon because it would be 'more of a challenge' than track or should he do the Triathlon because it won't be as much of a challenge as track since there are not as many guys competing for those spots?

    At the risk of sounding old and out of touch I seriously question why we are promoting a race that links drinking and sports? What's next we promote a hockey tournament where people must drink a beer after every whistle?

    Why is AC allowing the use of a national team uniform in a video that promotes the consumption of alcohol? Is this the image we want to promote to youth in Canada?

    We all know these drinkers/runners are hopping into their cars after the race and now that many provinces have zero tolerance in terms of drinking and driving there is something wrong with this new kind of race.

    Just wait for the first incident where a participant gets into an accident while driving home injuring or killing someone and the organizer is named in the lawsuit under the principle of "host liability".

    As far as I know, and for all the beer miles that I have been a part of (5 of them) not one participant drove themselves home. There would always be enough cars and designated drivers to take people home or to the AP.

    As wild as the BM sounds, it's pretty dang organized. If runners go through the trouble of picking out singlets, split shorts, track spikes and specific race-legal beers, I'm sure they have the conscious to make sure they have a ride to and from the track. He/she would also have to have really crappy friends/teammates if he/she were to be allowed behind the wheel after the race.

    Watch the race video. The time he is drinking the 4 beers amounts to about 34 seconds. While drinking the beers he is walking towards what is commonly known in track as the start/finish line. The other 4 minutes he is running.

    Are they hopping into their cars after running a beer mile? Should I hold my breath in belief that this is true and that you have personally encountered these athletes committing such hainous crimes? Speculation is not the answer. What kind of image are you unearthing by fallaciously stating that these runners are drunk drivers?

    Im assuming AC allows this due to positive publicity as the country has two world record holders. As for whats next, I believe that the beep test is being altered to accomodate Burt Reynolds shots at every beep. This should come into effect sometime in 2017.

    Relax.. you cannot assume they are driving home after these races. Extremely bogus assumption and extremely uncalled for.

    Besides your points.....Place yourself in Bellemore's shoes. Regardless of the alcohol involved, the beer mile image is harmless. He is a serious runner and as I've read from many interviews is clearly using this to help him in track & field. You cannot tell me that if you were in his position as a young adult and were good at this niche event that you wouldn't take advantage of it? He is an up and coming runner and would not have a sponsorship if it were not for this..He would be stupid to not jump on board - he is playing his cards right.

    Those are just a few of my points..if you want to continue a discussion on it then why don't we?

    Wow, What a positive spin you have put on such a horrible, negative thing that Corey has done!! ...Give your head a shake. This guy has done something (that he originally tried for fun) interesting, that brings attention to not only himself, but the sport of Track and Field, which it desperately needs.

    Interesting that you brought up hockey tournaments, and consumption of alcohol, and the impact this may have on our youth... I`m not sure if you`re a parent or not, but if you are and your child is in hockey, have you ever been to an away tournament??? Because I can tell you that I have, and what do you think the parents do at night during these tournaments??? I'll give you a hint, they drink a lot more beers than Corey does during a beer mile. You show me one kid in hockey that doesn't idolize his dad, and then tell me how what Corey is doing is such a horrible influence.

    Also, I know a lot of people who have tried the beer mile, and it's crazy how I didn't know they were all criminals??? How could you be that bold to claim that all these guys are drinking and driving without knowing them one bit? I wish that I knew something about you so that I could make some outrageous claim about something (legal) that you have done and accuse you of being a criminal!!

    Corey has done nothing here but take an opportunity here that is a stepping stone in his career. He says right in the video (if you even bothered to watch it) that he just does the beer mile for fun, and is way more focused on his track career. If you know ANYTHING about track & field or distance running you can see that this kid is a huge talent and deserves a sponsorship deal REGARDLESS of anything to do with the beer mile at all.

    I cannot wait until Corey is on the start line at Tokyo in 2020 contending for a medal, and you'll be sitting there realizing that this 'Drinking & Driving criminal' who was such a bad influence on our youth is actually the real deal.

    Merry Christmas! :)

    "Make up your confused mind!

    Should he do the Triathlon because it would be 'more of a challenge' than track or should he do the Triathlon because it won't be as much of a challenge as track since there are not as many guys competing for those spots?"


    First off I would like to say that comparing any two sports is just silly. While athletes of exceptional talents capable of qualifying for the Olympics HAVE the ability to convert to a different sport and be successful, doing so is easier said than done. Someone like Bellemore for example has won the genetic lottery. That fact would be further supported if he were to qualify for the Olympics. I agree with Troll Takashi that his background and athletic ability suggests he can switch to multisport (any sport really) and produce some solid results. However suggesting that multisport is less competitive than running (and it is is because everyone in the world can run) and therefore is less difficult is a dumb argument. They are two completely different sports and neither are easy to be successful in.

    With all do respect Mr. Takashi, saying Bellemore would be successful in triathlon is just words in the wind until he converts and proves it. What makes someone like Lionel become Lionel is his work ethic. What makes a triathlete a triathlete is their work ethic. I am not saying runners work less or triathletes train harder, I am saying it takes two different kinds of people to do one and not the other. Lionel Sanders is okay with training 6+hours a day. I would imagine for the time being Bellemore is not. Work ethic trumps anyone with genetic talent in a sport where your race ranges from 2-8 hours. Bellemore may not want to train that often. He could participate in multisport with a low mileage regime and chances are he would lose to the majority of competitive 70.3 athletes for that sake alone.

    My point is that while someone may have the talent to do something doesn't mean they can, or even want to. Mr. Takashi had mentioned Connor Darlington and Tristan Woodfine. Both are exceptional runners and top talents among their class. Yet neither produced any great results in triathlon, aside from Woodfine during his junior years. Tristan tried very hard and in the end he felt compelled to run. Darlington took a stab at it and quickly realized that the hours were to long and the sport to hard on his body. One could argue that, like Bellmore, both these athletes are more talented than someone like Lionel. But I can almost guarantee you that the former three will never want to compete in triathlon, whatever their reason may be.

    Any Olympic athlete will tell you that talent and genetics only gets you so far. The hard work is what places you amongst the best. And as a runner who occasionally trains with triathletes, the difference between being a great runner and a great triathlete, assuming that talent is not a problem, is the amount of hours you are willing to forego. Anyone with enough talent can be good at anything. But if you would prefer to spend 12 hours a week vs 30 hours a week training then triathlon is not for you.

    Remember people, I always back up my claims, or at least try to.
    Bellemore swam 2:07 in this Highschool OFSAA meet for the 200 Freestyle. In his present aerobic form, the man could probably break 2:00min with some quality training (if he hasn't already achieved that mark). Swimming is a feel sport, and it would not take him long to get the feel back for the water if he hasn't swam in a bit. It's also for tall men with big hands, big feet and long arms, all features Bellemore seems to possess. Based on this results from HS, Bellemore was in good enough shape to swim 750m in 9:00-9:30, possibly even faster. He would easily have success in Triathlon if he can ride a bike. The man can run 10k on the grass in 30-31minutes. My guess is, if the man ran a road course like Sportinglife, he may even crack 30min. This shows he must be in at least 14:30 shape for 5k. If he could cycle at 40kmph or faster the man could probably take on some of the best Pro's in Canada for the Sprint and Olympic Distances.

    No one will actually know his true potential, unless he tries it for himself.
    But I'm willing to bet that this guy has a better chance at making the Olympics in Tokyo for the Triathlon, than an 800m or 1500m. 4 years time to get to this

    Here are the pace times Bellemore would have to complete in succession without a break for an Olympic Distance race to make him one of the best in the World.

    17:30min 1500m
    57min 40k
    31min 10k

    Total
    1:45:30

    I think he can do it if he takes my consideration.

    Yes, not only do you sound, you are old and out of touch. As a parent of a kid who does the odd beer mile, I can assure you that their perspectives towards drinking and driving are very different from previous generations.

    Relax and let people have fun. There is more than enough time to grow up and be serious.

    I know you are a fan, but some perspective. A much younger Canadian lady recently swam a 1:57.

    CB should stick to running. He is pretty good at it.

    I'd bet the house on CB. Brannen is only marginally faster at the flat out mile right now and CB is unmatched in the drinking.

    This seems pretty off-topic for a beer mile thread but so much on this board seems to stray so I'll chime in ....

    I wasn't aware that Corey was a swimmer in high school. A 2:07 is decent but remember that the OFSAA results you are posting are for the non-club athletes. Last year at the National Age group championships the last place 16-18 year old boy swam a 2:06 (and that was in a long course pool so adjust the time down to around 2:02 for short course like they do at OFSAA. At the same meet the 15th best U18 swimmer went 17:26 for 1500m. To just assume that Corey could convert a 2:07 200m from 6 or 7 years ago into a 17:30 open water swim. He would likely need to start spending 15-20 hours per week in the pool like most competitive swimmers to be capable of that (a 17:30 open water means he would be capable of swimming well under 17:00 in a pool).

    He would also need to start spending a lot of time on the bike to be capable of a sub-1 hour ride. At least a couple of years of pretty solid riding in a competitive group.

    Not sure what his 10k pb is but after swimming 17:30 and biking the 57, I would be pretty shocked if he could still crank out 31 even for a 10k. You also didn't add in any transition times to your prediction.

    It seems like a pretty silly gamble to throw all of his potential in track events away to attempt this and I would say that even with your "consideration" he would have only summer 2017-2019 to get good enough to impress triathlon Canada enough to pick him over some of the studs we currently have racing at the elite ITU level so he better give up the beer miles and indoor track and head to the pool.

    Guess you'll never know unless CB tries.
    I bet you Corey could do a lot more than people think.
    People wrote off Sanders several years back because he didn't know how to swim.
    When Lionel started he was swimming 100m at over 2min pace.
    Look how far he's come.
    Now the World Record Holder at the Ironman.
    4 years ago people would have laughed if someone predicted Sanders would be capable of what he's achieved in the last year or two.
    So you guys can write off Corey if you want, but I'll keep my hopes up for him if he does try the Triathlon. Same way he's become Beer Mile World Champion, I think this guy could make one hell of a Triathlete if he trained.
