International Federation of Competitive Eating

I'd like to introduce you to Takeru Kobayashi.

Kobayashi has dominated the world of competitive eating for a few years now, and there's little doubt as to why. The world number one competitive eater holds the following records:

  • Cow Brains: 57 (17.7 pounds) / 15 minutes
  • Hamburgers: Krystals: 69 Krystal Square Burgers / 8 minutes/ Nov. 13, 2004
  • Hot Dogs: 53 1/2 Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs and Buns / 12 minutes/ July 4, 2004
  • Rice Balls: 20 pounds rice balls / 30 minutes

    This is a fascinating sport, but the very best part of it is the commentary and the after match interviews. Although you have missed out on most of the events of the year, have a look at up and coming events. Its almost worth the international travel to see this stuff. Forget about the Ashes.
