The “Chestnut’s Hot Dog Contest: A Legendary Feat of Eating Triumph!”


Joy Chestnut won the men’s category of the hot dog eating competition for a record 16th time by consuming 62 hot dogs in 10 minutes. And Mickey Sudo ate 39.5 hot dogs to win the women’s competition for the 9th consecutive time at the Independence Day celebration. The weather caused a long delay.

Chestnut later said it was a rollercoaster day due to the bad weather. They informed us it was cancelled, he remarked.
We weren’t sure if we would eat today. I’m just happy. It’s July 4th, and I got a chance to eat some hot dogs and win.”

He said, “I feel great. I have a leftover room, so I’ll have some beer later.”

Jeffrey Esper secured second place with 49 hot dogs, and James Webb from Australia came in third place with 47 hot dogs.
The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest brought thousands of people to Coney Island, New York, on Tuesday to witness competitive eaters devouring numerous hot dogs in just 10 minutes, as per their stomach’s permission.

A heavy rainstorm and lightning struck Coney Island around noon, scattering the crowd before they could come out for the competition. The weather delay lasted for about two hours, and the event resumed at 2 PM.

The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement warning of “strong winds” and “cloud-to-ground lightning in quick succession,” specifically mentioning Coney Island.

According to the initial storm report from the National Weather Service, there could be possible injuries from lightning strikes on Coney Island. FDNY reported responding to a call for “electrocution” on Coney Island just before noon and transported a person to the Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn.

The Spectacle of Gluttony

Amongst male competitors, Chestnut has been a dominant force, emerging as the indisputable favorite and clinching victory in an astonishing 16 out of the previous 17 contests held on Independence Day, triumphantly devouring a remarkable 63 hot dogs during last year’s event.

It will take about four days to feel normal, and for the first 12 hours after the competition, I’ll feel worthless. “This remarkable contest holds immense potential, and I am fully determined to undertake any necessary measures in order to secure the elusive 16th numeral.” It’s July 4th, and I’m going for number 16.”

In the women’s competition, top-ranked eater Sudo and newcomer Michelle Lesco battled it out for the title. However, upon officials’ review, Lesco secured the third-place finish with 33.5 dogs, while Miki Sudo finished in third place with 24.5 dogs.

Sudo claimed the championship last year with 40 hot dogs and set the women’s world record by consuming 48.5 hot dogs in 10 minutes. After winning this year’s title, she expressed disappointment with her final ranking.

“Although it’s 31 fewer, I’m sorry, friends,” she said to the crowd.

In New York City, at the renowned flagship restaurant of Nathan’s Famous on the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues on Coney Island, the hot dog eating champion faced off.
