First, the “competitive eating circuit” and the “Alka Seltzer U.S. Open of Competitive Eating” - sounds bizarre but apparently true(?). When do you suppose this will be an olympic sport?
“Sonya Thomas, who weighs 98 pounds, humbled her bigger male competitors as she consumed 11.3 pounds of lobster meat, breaking the old record of 9.76 pounds she set last year. “
That’s 11.5% of her body weight.
Makes me wonder what other crazy things people have eaten, and hoaxes around the same topic.
