Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo crush the competition at Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in NYC

United States, New York City
July 5, 2020 at 08:33 GMT -00:00 · Published

The 36-year-old from California and 13-time-champion Joey Chestnut and 7-time-champion natural Miki Sudo set new records in the annual Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest at New York City's Coney Island on Saturday, marking Independence Day.

Chestnut scarfed down 75 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, breaking his own record of 74 hot dogs in 2018 to claim the Mustard Belt in the male division.

"I'm sure either I'm going to get old and slow down a little bit and somebody will come get me or there's just going to be an absolute monster who comes and annihilates me but, do you know what? It's going to be funny though, I enjoy competition and as long as I'm having fun, you can count me in," Chestnut said.

Miki Sudo dominated the women's division, setting a new world record by eating 48.5 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, and earning her seventh title.

"This year I pushed myself more than ever. I came better prepared, everything on the home front, I'm in a better place now so I'm glad it translated in the table," she said.

The event took place indoors for the first time with no audience, and the participants were separated by plexiglass barriers, while judges wore face masks and sat six feet away from the stage in order to remain safe from coronavirus.

Chestnut and Sudo each pocketed $10,000 (8.892,84 Euro) for their victories.
