Congratulations to Joey Chestnut, who woke this morning with a terrible case of indigestion.
On the Fourth of July, Joey “The Jaws” Chestnut successfully defended his hot dog eating title. Within 10 minutes, he consumed 74 wieners and the buns. Every 8 seconds he swallowed another dog. He bragged afterward (quote) “I found a vicious rhythm. I was feeling good.”
The second place finisher at Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island had 20 fewer franks than Joey. This was his 11th crown.
The women’s title went to Miki Sudo for the fifth consecutive year. She chomped down 37 hot dogs. (ESPN)
