ESPN points out Joey Chestnut has now won more titles than 11-time Stanley Cup champion Henri Richard 🌭
Speed-eater Joey Chestnut devoured 71 hot dogs (20,590 calories) in 10 minutes on Thursday to become the champion of the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest for the twelfth time.
“He has God’s username and password and he does with it what he chooses,” the over-the-top announcer said. “The rock in which he stands is not a rock, it is the United States of America.”
The hot-dog-eating contest is a Fourth of July tradition held at the Coney Island boardwalk every year. Chestnut is the number-one ranked eater in the world. This year’s contest marked the 103rd in history.
