James “The Beast” Nielson, a two-time NCAA 5,000m champion, has claimed the record for being the first person to do the Beer Mile in under five minutes.

For the uninitiated: The Beer Mile involves running a mile around a track while stoping every 400 meters to drink a whole can of beer.

Nielson completed the feat in 4 minutes 57 seconds. His wife filmed his progress, and Nielson commented in the video that he’s been training for a year (I’m assuming some beer was involved in all that training).

Check out his attempt after the break..

Here are the splits for the laps:
