American Joey Chesnut Wins Hot-Dog Eating Contest, Shattering World Record

Oh yeah, American pride and Alka Seltzer are back!

American Joey Chestnut broke the world hot-dog eating record Wednesday at the annual Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest, downing 66 franks to beat six-time defending champ Takeru Kobayashi.

"I made my body work for me," Chestnut said after his win was announced.

Kobayashi finished second with 63 dogs eaten, though he seemed to spew up some dogs as the 12-minute contest came to a close at New York's Coney Island. Link.
