Defending champ sets Nathan's contest record with 74 hot dogs

Defending champ sets Nathan's contest record with 74 hot dogs

Over a decade ago, Chestnut sent shockwaves into the competition as he dethroned erstwhile six-time defending champion Takeru Kobayashi of Japan by eating a then world record of 66 hot dogs. Chestnut and Sudo each took home the coveted mustard belt and $10,000 for their eating prowess.

The initial tally incorrectly stated Chestnut only ate 64 franks, as the judges were unaware that the San Jose local was initially eating off of two plates.

In one of the most disgustingly incredible feats in sports, the 34-year-old Chestnut will be going for an unreal 11th title in 12 years at the annual Coney Island consumption competition.

Zanetti: "Ronaldo To Juventus? It Doesn't Concern Me"
Just after winning the UEFA Championship earlier this year, the Portuguese captain had hinted his move from Real Madrid. The Spanish club had struck a deal with the French champions according to reports which circulated on Wednesday .

Joey Chestnut ate 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes beating his competitor Carmen Cincotti who came in at 45. He holds the record with 73.5 hot dogs eaten in 10 minutes in a 2016 qualifier. Prior to this year's competition, Chestnut completed 72 frankfurters in 10 minutes last year.

Still, she easily beat out second-place finisher Mischelle Lesco of Tuscon, Arizona, who chowed down 28 wieners and buns.

Sudo fell short of the 41 hot dogs she ate in winning last year's contest. Chestnut is now ranked the No. 1 competitive eater by Major League Eating. Per usual, most will be tuning in to see if the current champion - Joey "Jaws" Chestnut - can emerge victorious and defend the crown yet again. In recent years, the company has also won awards (Napa Valley Mustard Festival) for its line of mustards, including its horseradish, picante, deli style and organic products. Even the 91-degree heatwave couldn't stop these men from gobbling down the buns and meat in record time. While her grand total was four fewer than her tally past year, it was nine more than the closest challenger, Michelle Lesco. Competitive get ready for the event by stretching out their stomachs by drinking gallons of milk or water as fast as they can.
