The winners of this year’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest have been announced!
According to a report from CBS Sports, Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo were the winners of this year’s contest. The contest takes place every Fourth of July in Coney Island, New York.
However, this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the contest took place in an indoor arena without any fans.
Sudo was the first of the two winners to compete in the contest, and her official total of hot dogs and buns consumed was 48.5 in 10 minutes, according to CBS Sports. She not only beat her own personal record, but she also set a new world record in the women’s division.
