Former Razorback, 'World's Fastest Stoner,' comes in last at U.S. Olympic trails

Posted By on Thu, Feb 18, 2016 at 11:57 AM


Kind of a funny story from Deadspin today about Chris Barnicle — once an All-American in track for the University of Arkansas — coming in dead last during the recent trails for the U.S. Olympic marathon team in L.A., with a time of 3:45:34, which was apparently the slowest time any runner of either gender has ever clocked in the Olympic trials since 2000.

Given that Barnicle proudly calls himself "The World's Fastest Stoner," however, it's probably a miracle he didn't divert to a taco stand at some point along the course and fail to finish altogether. Barnicle now runs company called Zip Organics with his former Arkansas teammates. You can read a Q&A with him here.
