Wine Connoisseur Samples 25 Wines during Marathon

Most ordinary distance runners prefer water, but Tom Gilbey is anything but ordinary. He’s an expert on wines put his knowledge to the test during the recent London Marathon. He hid two wine glasses in his belt and, at each mile maker, he guessed the identity of each wine given to him by colleagues.

Of the 25 wines, Gilbey got 7 completely correct, 14 mostly correctly, and 4 wrong by the metrics of year, origin, and type. The 52-year old tells BBC News that he didn’t do any serious training for this event and hadn’t run a marathon since 1996.

By committing to this extreme athleticism, he raised over £10,000 for a hospice. You can watch his compilation video of each stop here.
