NEW YORK — Miki Sudo (MIHK’-ee SOO’-doh) downed 37 franks to win her fifth straight title in the women’s competition of the annual Nathan’s Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest.

The Las Vegas competitor fell short of the 41 hot dogs she consumed last year, but still beat out second-place finisher Michelle Lesco of Tucson, Arizona. Lesco chowed down 28 wieners and buns.

Thousands of attendees braved 83º temperatures and a heat index of 91º to witness the annual July Fourth competition on the Coney Island boardwalk.

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut confronted 20 other men during the men’s competition to take home the coveted Mustard Belt.

Sudo was a fan favorite, drawing big cheers from the crowd during her performance, which was slightly delayed after she requested new water to soak her buns.
