Joey Chestnut is chomp champ again in July 4 hot dog contest
NEW YORK (AP) – Frankfurter-munching phenom Joey “Jaws” Chestnut has gobbled his way to a 15th win Monday at the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest.
Chestnut powered down 63 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes at the annual exhibition of excess. He set the record at 76 last year and was contending with a leg injury this year.
Women’s record-holder Miki Sudo took the women’s title after skipping last year’s frank fest because she was pregnant.
Sudo downed 40 wieners and buns in 10 minutes to notch her eighth victory.
