Japan's champion speed-eater has won his second contest in two days by ingurgitating 100 roasted pork buns in 12 minutes in Hong Kong. Takeru Kobayashi ate twice as many buns as the first runner-up, Johnny Wu, who only managed to guzzle 47. Mr Kobayashi, 27, used a special technique - squeezing the buns tight and sipping plenty of water while chewing to soften them up. Only the day before, he triumphed in Hong Kong's dumpling-eating contest. He downed 83 steamed dumplings in eight minutes on Saturday. He also holds the world record for hot dog eating - 53-and-a-half in 12 minutes. The speed-eater, who weighs only 65kg, is the five-time winner of the Nathan's hot dog-eating competition in New York. He set another world record in 2004 by eating 69 hamburgers in eight minutes at an international contest in Tennessee. Mr Kobayashi won a cash prize of 20,000 Hong Kong dollars for his prowess in the bun-scoffing competition on Sunday.
I am so jealous of this guy. How can eat all that and not put on weight? It's not fair!
San Nakji for President!
