Defending champ Joey Chestnut sets world record with 74 hot dogs

Nathan's Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest to Air Live July 4 on ESPN2

In the women's competition, Miki Sudo defended her title, becoming just the third competitor to win five titles and downing 37 franks in 10 minutes.

Sudo is a four-time victor herself, and past year she broke 40 hot dogs for the first time at the event, eating 41.

Chestnut first won the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in 2007, when he ate 66 hot dogs to set a new world record and defeat six-time defending champion Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi. Runner-up Carmen Cincotti's official tally shot up to 64 from 45 after the recount.

"I found a vicious rhythm", the 34-year-old Chestnut said after the stuffing session.

The sport-although some critics refuse to label competitive eating as an athletic contest-was held in 1972 and was won by Jason Schechter who ate a modest 14 hot dogs.

According to Nathan's website, on July 4, 1916, four immigrants gathered at this hot dog stand and made the eating contest's history.

On the women's side, Miki Sudo won the Mustard Belt for the fifth straight year. While her grand total was four fewer than her tally previous year, it was nine more than the closest challenger, Michelle Lesco.

The event, televised on ESPN, attracts thousands of in-person spectators and has rivaled sporting events for its competitive flair.
