Miki Sudo retains her Nathan's Famous hot dog eating crown
The 30-year-old competitive eater from Las Vegas scarfed down 38 1/2 hot dogs and buns in ten minutes to claim the coveted chomp-ionship title for the third straight year. She also pockets a $10,000 prize.
Sudo beat out former champion Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas, who devoured 34 hot dogs. Thomas had reigned queen of the Coney Island competition from 2011 until she lost in an upset to Sudo in 2014.
Ah, shameless gluttony. A tried-and-true Independence Day tradition.
