Default Drink Beer, Run Better

Don't know if this has hit the board yet, but if not, check out the story here:

Granted, there's a lot of conditions attached to this, and we'll have to see whether alcoholic beer has the same effect, and whether it's effective at lower doses, but still... good news.

“Furthermore, it is not possible to drink one to one and a half liters of alcoholic beer per day, especially not during strenuous training.”

Ummmm.... what?

Apparently Germans are not up to the heroic drinking tasks required to be awesome runners?

And don't you think you'd know if you got the placebo?

Has there been any followup? Athletes would be more concerned about performance in the event than the damage done. Yet, there was not one sentence or thought given to performance. Did the beneficial effects in fact enable him to train harder and more effectively? Did he perform better as a result? Hell, I can drink a liter of beer each day during training, train less hard due to the, ummm, side effects, and still show an improvement by their study. I'm healthier already for not running at all, for that matter.
