put a whoopin' on Tekeru Kobayashi
to win the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest
He beat Kobayashi and set a new world record of 66 dogs!
Kobayashi ate 63.
This was probably the most intense eating contest I've ever seen.
For a few minutes, it appeared that Chestnut was going to lose. It was after Kobayashi had a "reversal", meaning he accidentally regurgitated 2 dogs, that Chestnut was able to take the lead and bring the coveted Mustard belt back home to America after 6 years.
Great job Joey!
