Sudo wins N.Y. hot dog eating contest for 6th straight year

July 5, 2019

New York--Miki Sudo won the women's title in the Nathan's Famous annual hot dog eating contest in New York for the sixth consecutive year on Thursday.

At the Independence Day event on Coney Island, Sudo, a 33-year-old living in the United States, wolfed down 31 hot dogs in 10 minutes, outpacing runner-up Michelle Lesco, 35, who ate 26 hot dogs.

Sudo failed to rewrite her personal record of 41 wieners and buns registered in 2017, or the 37 hot dogs she downed last year.

"It was just really hot, and I didn't do my training right", she said.

On the day, the mercury reached nearly 30 degrees Celsius at the event site under strong sunshine.

In the men's division, Joey Chestnut, 35, won his 12th title. He ate 71 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Jiji Press
