Kobayashi 69 Hot Dogs
February 6, 2012 by staff
Kobayashi 69 Hot Dogs, Takeru Kobayashi, the Japanese former hot dog eating champion, won an annual chicken wing eating contest in Philadelphia on Friday, downing a record 337 wings in 30 minutes.
At the Wing Bowl 20, the 33-year-old smashed the previous record of 255 wings set last year by Jonathan Squibb and received a cash prize of $20,000, according to the electronic edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper.
The 20th event, hosted by a local radio station, reportedly drew a crowd of about 20,000.
Kobayashi, a native of Nagano Prefecture, won the famous July 4 hot dog eating competition in New York for six years in a row from 2001.
In 2010 and 2011, Kobayashi did not take part in the hot dog event due to a contractual issue. He set an unofficial record last year by eating 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes at an off-site event as the contest was broadcast live there on television.
“The truth is that if you brought me another 100 wings right now, I think I could eat them,” Kobayashi was quoted as saying after Friday’s event. “Not if it was a competition, but if you brought them to me, I’d take my time. But I could fit 100 more in.”
