For the second year in a row, when Nathan’s Famous Women’s Hot Dog Eating Contest has had a women’s only division, Korean American Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas won this year’s contest. She broke her own record set last year, by eating 45 hot dogs in ten minutes instead of 41. In the Men’s division, Joey Chestnut won his sixth straight Coney Island hot dog eating contest. Former six time winner Takeru Kobayashi sat out the contest he helped make famous due to his ongoing dispute with Major League Eating. Congratulations to Thomas on another win!
