On a warm and windy night, 24 intrepid runners faced off at Rolly Mills
Track in Edmonton for the Canadian National Beer-Miling Championships.
Most notable, reigning World Beer-Miling Champion Scott Jensen was beaten
not only by relative unknown Blaine Woodcock but also was unable to hold
off the late charge of Solomon Ssenyenge, who outleaned Jensen at the line.
Dazed and confused, Jensen immediately talked about hanging up his spikes
and referee's jersey and joining the ranks of recreational beer-miling.
