Japanese dude smashes chicken wing bowl record in the US, 337 in 30 minutes

USA, Philadelphia – In a filled indoor arena on Friday, the city’s annual chicken wing eating extravaganza was about to start. Whilst being observed by 17 000 spectators, Takeru Kobayashi set a new record: 337 chicken wings in 30 minutes.

Kobayashi-san, weighing only 127 pounds (58 Kg) earned himself both champion trophee and walked away with 20 000 USD prize money. The previous record was 255-wings set by Jonathan “Super Squibb” Squibb, who won the last 3 consecutive years. The previous 5-times record holder was local favorite Bill “El Wingador” Simmons, a 330 pounds (150 Kg) fella.

 

Quoted from Reuters:

“The Wing Bowl is held at the Wells Fargo Center each Super Bowl weekend by WIP, a sports-talk radio station, which came up with the idea almost two decades ago as a consolation prize for fans of the Philadelphia Eagles when they fail, as they have this year, to advance to the Super Bowl.

Gladwell and his brother John, 49, of Lawrenceville, New Jersey paid $10 per seat to the extravaganza which began with a parade of small floats and scantily clad women, known as “Wingettes,” each touting the eating prowess of the 26 professional eaters.”
