Virginia's "Black Widow" Defends Hot Dog Eating Title

by Associated Press posted Jul 4 2013 12:07PM
  NEW YORK (AP) - The Black Widow of competitive eating has narrowly defended her title.
 
     Sonya Thomas, of Alexandria, Va., devoured 36 and three-quarters hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes to win the women's competition at the annual Fourth of July Coney Island event.
 
     The 100-pound Thomas went toe-to-toe with Juliet Lee with a second to spare. Lee ate 36 dogs.
 
     The count was much lower than last year, when Thomas broke her own record by eating 45 hot dogs and buns.
 
     The Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest has been a city tradition for 97 years.
