Michelle Lesco Wiki – Michelle Lesco Biography

Michelle Lesco, from Tuscon, Arizona, was never behind during Sunday’s competition, beating second runner-up Sarah Rodriguez by more than seven dogs. The 37-year-old, 112-pound athlete is a former roommate of seven-time reigning champion Miki Sudo, who is pregnant and did not compete in this year’s competition.

With six minutes left in the match, Lesco barely led Rodríguez 15-13, but the second woman in the Major League Eating ranking managed to increase her lead in the final minutes despite not being able to jump to aid her digestion due to an anterior cruciate ligament tear.

Michelle Lesco Crowned Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Champion

Defending world champion Joey Chestnut broke his own world record on Sunday, devouring 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes during Nathan’s famous international hot dog eating contest. It was the fourteenth time the world’s best hot dog eater won the title in the past 15 years, 26 more than runner-up Geoffrey Esper and one more than Chestnut did last year.

On the women’s side, Michelle Lesco, ninth overall, won her first championship after consuming 30 3/4 sausages and buns, 6 3/4 more than runner-up Sarah Rodríguez. Miko Sudo, the seven-time defending champion, did not compete this year as she is expecting her first child later this month. Sudo set the record for women in 2020 when she ate 48.5 hot dogs and buns.

The annual July 4 event was held in front of spectators in Coney Island. Last year’s contest was held in a private media venue only due to the coronavirus pandemic. According to Nathan’s, legend has it that the first such contest was held on July 4, 1916, when four immigrants competed to show how patriotic they were by eating hot dogs at Nathan’s stand in Coney Island.

The contest has only been registered since 1972.
