Chowdown champion Joey Joe’s Chestnut broke his record and scored his 14th win in Nathan’s famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Sunday. Michelle Resco won the women’s title.
The 37-year-old fox defeated 76 francs and bread in 10 minutes. That is one more than the men’s record of the previous year, when the competition was held without fans due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Chestnut, Westfield, Indiana, said in an ESPN interview that he “feels good” after Sunday’s win. “Even when I felt uncomfortable, everyone cheered me up and pushed me, which made me feel better.”
Resco, Tucson, Arizona defeated 30¾ dogs in 10 minutes and called their win a “great vibe”.
Miki Sudo, an active female champion and record holder, skipped this year hoping to have a baby with fast eater Nick Wellie in a few weeks. He fought for the men’s title, but it wasn’t enough.
The annual Independence Day Frankfurt Fest usually takes place in front of Nathan’s flagship store in Brooklyn’s Coney Island district. However, this year’s plan took place when coronavirus restrictions changed, and the event took place at the nearby minor league ballpark, Maimonides Park, with 5,000 spectators.
Last year it was held indoors with no direct audience due to a pandemic.
Chestnut, of Westfield, Indiana, said he missed a fan last year.
“I’ve been looking forward to it all year,” he told ESPN in an interview before this year’s tournament.
