Gordon Mack crashes around curve in beer 4x400

Dec 18, 2016

At yesterday's Beer Mile World Championships, Gordon Mack did something the only way he knows how--as hard as possible, to the point of personal peril. He wiped out aggressively on the final curve of his leg of the beer 4x400m, but sprung up quickly to catch most of the lead pack and hand off to me in second. (I quickly got passed by most of the field, and our team was later disqualified.)

Gordon is recovering, and is now in the Ryan Fenton club of being recorded getting injured on the job.
