Boxer drinks his own urine for success

How far will some athletes go to succeed in their sport? Pretty far. For boxer Juan Manuel Marquez, drinking his own urine has become part of his training routine. HBO is documenting his training on film as he prepares for the biggest fight of his career, on Sept. 19 against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will it lead to a victory for him? Marquez thinks so.

Urophagia has deep roots in many cultures (just not ours). Urine does contain a lot of minerals, so there are some who claim it has medicinal properties. Still, I'll pass.
