Bob Hawke, record-holding drinker, has died

Bob Hawke, world record beer drinker, has died.

Hawke, a personal drinking hero, set the Guinness World Record while attending Oxford University as a Rhodes scholar by chugging 2.5 pints (48oz, or 4 regular cans) of beer in 11 seconds. The current record is 5 seconds. Here is a video of him chugging a beer in a stadium. In addition to his feats of alcoholic prowess, he was Prime Minister of Australia.

I remember him speaking just after the America's yacht racing cup was won... (doesn't seem like 36 years ago)
