Joey Chestnut makes history in Coney Island

Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest: Time, how to watch, livestream of July 4 tradition

On Tuesday, for Independence Day, Joey Chestnut managed to win the Coney Island hot dog contest for the 10th time, with 72 #Hot Dogs swallowed in 10 minutes.

A handful of animal rights activists who were taken into police custody as they tried to unfold a banner at the annual July Fourth hot dog eating contest at Nathan's Famous in NY have been released without charges.

A nine-time Nathan's hot dog contest victor, Chestnut ate a record 70 hot dogs in just 10 minutes past year to regain the championship from Stonie.

Once again, Joey Chestnut proved there is no match for his feats of gastrointestinal fortitude. Chestnut, informed of his new rival's threat to his reign, said he was looking forward to it.

Sudo told ESPN she "just came back better than ever" this year. 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.

Earlier in the women's competition, Miki Sudo scarfed down 41 dogs in 10 minutes to defend her pink championship belt.

That's two more frankfurters than he consumed past year, and it's a new world record.

"I'm gonna crush you and your skinny jeans", said Chestnut, who stands 6-foot-1 and weighs a manly 230 pounds, in an interview with TMZ Sports.

The demonstrators later issued a statement saying they were from a group called Direct Action Everywhere, and want Nathan's to stop holding the contest. We're splitting hairs when it comes to a point where we are debating a dude eating 71 hot dogs versus 72.

Many people wore hot dog-shaped foam hats and held signs with messages like "Bun Stuff" to cheer for the eaters. She downed 38 dogs/buns in 2016, beating Thomas by three.

Sudo's four titles is the most in the history of the women's competition.
