A 34-year-old American man set a new world record Wednesday by devouring 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes at an annual hot dog eating contest in NY.

Of course, many of us remember a Japanese legend by the name of Kobayashi who set the record of 50 hot dogs back in 2001, and introduced competitive eating to the world as a minor celebrity, holding the record of 69 dogs until Joey Chestnut came along in 2016.

Sudo, born in NY to a Japanese father and an American mother, devoured 37 hot dogs at the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, well ahead of her competitors, though down from the 41 she ate a year ago.

People compete in Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York City, July 4, 2017.

The 2018 competition ran into some mishaps regarding the actual number of hot dogs consumed. Chestnut pulled a stunner a year ago by eating 72 hot dogs in just 10 minutes.

He added that new judges would be used for the competition next summer. MLE president Rich Shea confirmed as much, saying that he doesn't want to "interrupt the sanctity" of Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4 if he does add technology - but his reasoning might be just a little self-absorbed. The victory handed him the coveted Mustard Belt for the eleventh time in his "hot dog-eating" career. The women's contest officially begins at 11 a.m. EDT, and the men's event will follow it up at 12:30 p.m.

But that wasn't enough competition for Scott, who was eating hot dogs three at a time, coming in as the clear victor after quickly eating a total of seven.

Fans, Americans, and hot dog-lovers alike celebrated Chestnut's win and new world record. "I just kept going", he said.

That didn't stop the Las Vegas eater from easily beating out second-place finisher Mischelle Lesco of Tuscon, Arizona, who chowed down 28 wieners and buns. Women's victor Miki Sudo also took home $10,000.

Among the ladies, Miki Sudo walked away with the trophy after eating 37 hot dogs in 10 minutes. But despite how Chestnut finishes Wednesday's competition, his record is expected to remain intact, with heavy -220 odds favoring the victor to consume UNDER 72.5 hot dogs and buns.

Following this year's edition of the contest, ESPN2 will be airing four hours of live cornhole.
