Reigning champ Joey Chestnut has logged his third consecutive win in Coney Island’s annual hot dog eating contest with a world-record 68 franks.
He defeated his archrival, six-time titleholder Takeru Kobayashi, in Saturday’s bout. Chestnut led throughout the contest.
Last year’s event initially ended in a tie, with Chestnut and Kobayashi both gobbling down 59 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. Chestnut went on to win a dramatic five hot dog eat-off.
This year’s Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest was broadcast live on ESPN.
