Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo won the 101st Nathan's Annual Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest



Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo won the 101st Nathan's Annual Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest, each devouring 72 and 41 hot dogs, respectively, in 10 minutes.

Chestnut's win marks the 10th time the 33-year-old has stolen the title. For 20-year-old Sudo, it was her fourth-consecutive win, CBS News reported.

"Next year, if I come back, you can bet I'll be pushing harder," Chestnut told ESPN2 shortly after winning the event. "I treat competitive eating like a sport, it's not like going to a buffet, I'm not a buffet buster. I train, I fast, I tape my practices and try to figure out how to improve. I make my body work for me and I've been really lucky for how its performed."

The annual contest has been held at Coney Island in New York since 1972.

Second place went to Michelle Lesco with 32 and a half dogs and buns, and third place went to Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas with 30.

Sudo's original total was counted as 36 hot dogs and buns, but was adjusted to the winning amount of 41. Her previous best was 38 dogs in 2015 and 2016.

Thomas and Sudo both had three consecutive wins before Tuesday's contest, and Thomas holds the all-time record of 45 from 2012
