Elvira "Vera" Montes, an 81-year-old grandmother, completed the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships in Austin on Dec.1. A beer mile takes place on a 1/4 mile track, and runners must chug a beer before every lap. So participants pound four beers in less than 30 minutes while running. Montes not only completed it in 20 minutes, she beat her 47-year-old daughter! Her son-in-law was unable to finish the race and will likely never live it down. Vera is one of those rare super-cool grandmas, like the one that lost her sh*t when Taylor Swift brought Mick Jagger out at a concert. She's not much of a beer fan, though, and had this to say after the race:
I'm not a big beer drinker. I like beer when the weather is real hot and there's nothing else to drink. I'm really a scotch drinker, Chivas if it's available. If it was scotch we were drinking instead of beer, I would have run a lot faster.
Everyone should aspire to be this healthy and kickass when they're 81. Hopefully she continues to run and drink with the best of them. And now she has bragging rights over her daughter and son-in-law forever.
