Dubuque's Osthoff 9th at Nathan's Hot Dog Contest

Posted:

NEW YORK (KWWL) -- Dubuque's Aaron Osthoff made the most of the national stage downing 27 hot dogs at the Nathan's World Famous eating contest on Coney Island.  Osthoff, nicknamed the "A-Train" finished 9th overall in the event.

That number paled in comparison, however, to the event winner.  Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, the world record holder, chowed down 62 dogs in the 10 minute time limit to win his 5th straight title in the event.  Chestnut ate 9 more hot dogs than runner-up Paul Bertolino of Chicago.
