While Canada’s Corey Bellemore continued to exert his supremacy in beer mile racing, American Allison Grace Morgan (in photo) became one of the all-time best on Aug. 4 at the 2019 Beer Mile World Classic in Berlin. Bellemore, the world’s most dominant beer miler and world record-holder (4:33), avenged his disqualification in last year’s championship with an impressive 4:36 effort on a dirt track in Berlin to win his second title in four years. (American Chris Robertson was a distant second in 4:47, but his time was just one second off his American record.) Meanwhile, Morgan, a strong runner on the track and roads with a 4:40 mile PR to her credit, might have found a new niche as a beer miler. The 37-year-old Bend, OR, resident, dominated the women’s elite race wire-to-wire in Berlin to win in 6:24, the fourth-fastest women’s time ever.
