Joey Chestnut sat outside the Nathan's Hot Dog building on Coney Island hoping to find the slightest bit of shade to compose himself.

As crowds donning hot dog hats packed Coney Island, Chestnut alternated between shoving two hot dogs and two buns into his mouth for the duration of the competition. Not fireworks or a Taylor Swift party (RIP), but a world record at a hot dog eating contest.

Miki Sudo won the women's title, eating 37 hot dogs. Chestnut won his 11th title in the last 12 years, and established a new personal best after demolishing 74 dogs. Chestnut beat 20 other contestants to earn the coveted "Mustard Belt" and ate a record 74 hot dogs and buns, surpassing the previous record of 72 dogs he set a year ago.

The men's competition also included a Jersey face, in Newark resident Carmen Cincotti, the no. 2-ranked competitive eater by Major League Eating. It was a odd error to be that far off, but considering Chestnut was finishing 7.4 hot dogs per minute - that's a hot dog and bun every 8.1 seconds - it was tough to keep up.

This afternoon in New York, Joey Chesnutt was once again crowned the victor of the Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest.

He none the less did something practically inconceivable while in competition: downing a record 74 wieners and buns in 10 minutes' time.
