New York, Sept 4, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Wonders never cease to exist. One competitive eater by the name Joey Chestnut managed to eat 191 chicken in 12 minutes only hence becoming the new world champion.

He set the record yesterday in the wing-eating contest at the National Buffalo Wing Festival in New York that occurs annually. Chestnut defeated the longtime champion and rival Sonya Thomas who is also known as ‘The Black Widow’.

Chestnut broke the previous 183 wings record that had been set by Thomas. Thomas, who came second in the competitions after finishing 170 wings, has been the champion for the last five years.

According to George Shea who is the chairman of the major League Eating, Sonya Thomas had almost the whole crowd behind her but she was still beaten.

Chestnut is considered to be then greatest eater in history.
