Man eats 45 slices of pizza in 10 minutes to win contest

According to a news report on cnn.com, “Chowdown champ Joey Chestnut has done it again — this time proving he’s a pizza powerhouse. He downed 45 slices in 10 minutes Sunday to win the first-ever Famous Famiglia World Pizza Eating Championship in New York’s Times Square.”

“The 24-year-old from San Jose, California, says he fasted for more than a day to prepare,” said the story. “He folded and squeezed the slices to make them easier to swallow. The 24-year-old rocketed to competitive-eating celebrity when he won Coney Island’s July Fourth hot-dog eating contest in 2007. He took the title again this summer by gulping down 59 dogs in 10 minutes. He won a contest in Tennessee last month by wolfing down 93 Krystal hamburgers in 8 minutes.”
