Iowan competes in famous hot dog contest

Posted:

A man from eastern Iowa took a shot at Nathan's Famous Hot Dog eating contest on Coney Island on 4th of July.

Aaron Osthoff is from Dubuque, taking part in the contest that's been a 4th of July staple since 1916.

But he couldn't beat the now five-time champ, Joey Chestnut, who this year put away 62 franks in ten minutes.
