Hot Dog eating Champion
At the 2004 World Hotdog Eating Championships on July 4th, Takeru Kobayashi, also known as "Food Fighter", or "Tsunami", gulped down 53½ hotdogs in just 12 minutes to set a new world record! That works out to more than one dog every 15 seconds. Again in 2006, Takeru broke his own World Record, with a fraction more shoved in, 53¾. He has now won the event every year since 2001.
What is more impressive, is that Takeru weighs only 131 pounds. The prize for being the world champion, he is awarded a trophy, the championship belt and most importantly a year's supply of hotdogs.
In 2007, Kobayashi lost the title in a tight competition to American Joey Chestnut. That ended Kobayashi's 6 year winning streak.
