Beer Mile WR Holder Lewis Kent commits to the FloTrack Beer Mile, eyes 4:50

Western Ontario's Lewis Kent was only 200th in the men's gold 8K on Saturday at the Greater Louisville Classic, but his running strengths are reserved for a much shorter distance, a race in which Kent is currently the fastest in the world. The Canadian set the Beer Mile world record of 4:55.78 on August 7th, and just this weekend he announced that he will race the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships on December 1st in Austin, Texas.
