Competitive Eating

68 Hot Dogs in 10 Minutes

Bet your Fourth of July stomachache wasn’t worse than this guy's: Joey Chestnut won his third consecutive title at the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating contest by eating 68 dogs in 10 minutes—a new world record. The 218 lb. 25-year-old professional eater beat Takeru Kobayashi by four hot dogs. "After the second minute I knew my body was cooperating," Chestnut said. "It was such a good day. I've never eaten that many before." 40,000 fans turned out for the contest. Chestnut won $20,000 and the mustard belt.
