3. Canadian Nielson, who now lives in California, claims to have broken the “world record” for the event after completing the feat in 4 minutes 57 seconds at the weekend.
A video of his attempt, filmed by his wife, has quickly spread across the internet, with viewers marvelling at his effort and the time splits - for laps and beer chugging.
In the clip, Nielson said he trained for a year before his world record attempt.
He said the biggest challenge was not “drinking the beer fast and not running fast, it’s going to be getting that beer out of the can as quickly as possible and inhaling it”.
