Coney Island is the location each and every year for the annual Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Contest. For years a man by the name of Takeru Kobayashi dominated the sport, but for the past 6 years one man has been crowned the champ.

Joey Chestnut, with a total of 68 hotdogs put down in 10 minutes has been given the mustard colored championship belt this year and has pulled in his 6th consecutive win.

Fun fact of the year, Nathan’s Hotdog’s donates 100,000 hotdogs to the local food bank in New York.

Congratulations to Joey Chestnut your 2012 Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Champion.
