The world famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest is an annual American competitive-eating event and is held each year in Coney Island, a neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

In recent years the contest is marked by fierce rivalry between American Joey Chestnut and his Japanese challenger Takeru Kobayashi, who claimed in last year's edition to have eaten 69 hot dogs one more than the recognized world record.
