Who Won Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest 2017?

Science of Sport: How to win the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest

Earlier in the day, Miki Sudo notched a fourth-time win in the women's division of the annual Fourth of July hot dog eating contest. Chestnut's FitBit charted through the roof Tuesday as he passed the 20,000 calorie-intake mark, according to Nathan's nutrition facts. For the second year in a row animal-rights activists attempted to disrupt the show by unfurling a banner and shouting their opposition to meat eating, before police tackled them and escorted them out.

Joey Chestnut was defeated once, but it doesn't seem as though he's about to let it happen again.

Meanwhile, for those who find this sort of hot dog overindulgence objectionable, you're not alone.

Second place went to Carmen Cinotti who as able to pull in 62 hot dogs.

Police say five people were taken into custody after trying to disrupt the event.

Chestnut holds more than 40 competitive eating titles, ranging from apple pie to burritos.

And true to form, "Joey the jaws" did not disappoint! Both he and Stonie are from San Diego, California.

As many as 30,000 fans are expected to be on hand to watch the top eaters tackle as many Nathan's Famous hot dogs as they can in 10 minutes.

This is Joey's 10th time winning the hot dog eating contest. She beat Michelle Lesco, who downed 32 franks and buns. As a further bit of good fortune, because of some travel issues for a few of the judges, I found myself "on the bag" for Stonie's efforts and, in the women's contest, for the legendary Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas.

The men's competition is later Tuesday. Miki Sudo won Tuesday with 41 hots dogs consumed.

At the Nathan's contest past year, three Direct Action Everywhere activists were arrested for trying to jump the stage and interrupt the contest.

When it comes to legacy, competition matters, and Chestnut is facing a weakened field. It's his 10th win in the last 11 years, a streak interrupted only by Matt Stonie in 2015.

What better way to celebrate America's independence than with hot dogs. But Thomas holds the women's record, at 45 franks.

The chowdown showdown usually draws thousands of spectators and is televised on ESPN.
