According to Japan Today, Takeru Kobayashi of Japan took home the title of the World Hot Dog Champion for the 5th time. Kobayashi known as the world speed eating champion gulped down 100 barbecued-pork buns in the Hong Kong contest Sunday, some of them without even chewing, beating the first-runner up by a long, long swallow.
The first runner-up, Johnny Wu, managed to swallow only 47 of the steamed buns filled with barbecued pork which is a popular delicacy of Hong Kong.
