Woman wins famous hot dog eating contest

The greatest champion in all of competitive eating once again subjugated all opposition to reach the pinnacle of his astonishing career.

The 41 dogs from Sudo marks her personal best in the tournament.

Joey Chestnut devoured 70 hot dogs in 2016, but how many will he get down for the 2017 contest?

If you do not believe me when I say that people are absolutely insane about the Hot Dog Eating contest even to the point of cult-like reverence, here is a link to the website where they are actually counting down the seconds until it begins.

After falling to Matthew Stonie in 2015, defending champion and eating legend Joey Chestnut picked up his ninth title last summer taking down an fantastic 70 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

Chestnut said at Monday's pre-contest weigh-in that he models his training after marathoners, slowly building up to eating more and more franks as the contest approaches.

Jack Cox, a software developer, said he felt a "large thump" and heard and felt the train grinding for as long as 30 seconds. Governor Andrew Cuomo, who controls the MTA board, has not issued a statement on the accident.

To win the title, Chestnut had to consistently put away an average of seven to eight hot dogs per minute for the entirety of the competition. Then go eat a hot dog. On the women's side: can ANYONE top Miki Sudo? She won previous year with 38.5 hot dogs, making it her third consecutive victory.

For over a decade running, it seems that no matter who wins the perennial showdown of gastronomic gladiators at the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest, San Jose emerges victorious.

Record-setting eaters are gearing up to gobble at the renowned Nathan's Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest in NY.

Chestnut's facing Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie in a rematch. Sudo has been victorious for the past three years.

He's taken home the mustard yellow belt nine of the last 10 years.

The chowdown showdown usually draws thousands of spectators and is televised on ESPN.
