All you can eat: Hot dogs !

Every year on the 4th of July, during the festivities of America’s birthday, takes place a quite disturbing competition at Coney Island, in the state of New York, also known as Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog-Eating:

The only rule: Eat as many Hot dogs as you can in 10 minutes…

In summer 2013, for the 7th time in a row, the victor was Joey Chestnuts. This time he managed to eat 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes, his new personal best “performance”.

There is also a competition for women, in which the winner, Sonya Thomas, ate 36 sandiches. The most crazy thing is that she is a small and skinny woman (barely 50kg), which makes it even more impressive…

With these kinds of contests, no wonder America has one of the highest obesity rate in the world. In the state of new york, where the competition took place, almost 58% of the adult population is either obese or in overweight, and over 40% of the children have the same problem.
