No Spilling At Milk Drinking Contest

HARVARD, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – At one competition, crying over spilled milk is entirely possible.

The 68th Annual Milk Days is heading to Harvard, Illinois, this Friday (Jun. 5 ) through Sunday (Jun. 7), where the main event is the milk drinking contest.

Competitors must knock back either a jug, pint, or quart of milk – depending on their age – as fast as possible, and the quickest quencher wins the title.

According to spokesperson Wendy Marzahl, anyone who spills milk or slams down their glass without it being completely empty is automatically disqualified, especially because hitting it on the table sends cow juice flying onto the judges.

She says, “They don’t like that at all. It may be the thing that keeps someone from winning.”

Participants often train for weeks in preparation, drinking glasses of milk and timing their efforts.

However, Marzahl says no amount of practice can save them from brain freeze after drinking the ice cold milk provided at the event.
