Frank-ly Blogging: “Chestnut is the champ.”

NEW YORK, July 4 — American Joey Chestnut, 23, ate 66 hot dogs and buns today at the 2007 Nathan’s Hotdog Contest to win coveted Mustard Belt, the greatest prize in all of competitive eating.

Chestnut defeated six-time reigning champ, Takeru Kobayashi, 29, of Nagano, Japan, who put away 63 dogs and buns.

Both Chestnut and Kobayashi shattered the previous Nathan’s record of some 53 dogs and buns and eclipsed Chestnut’s world record of some 59 dogs and buns. Chestnut reigns as Nathan’s champion and world champ.
