115-Pound Woman Wins Illinois Hot Dog Eating Contest
This goes to prove that you don't need to have be a big dude with a big belly to win!
Her name is Michelle Lesco and she could best be described as a petite young lady. She checks in at a paltry 115 pounds on a scale. Don't let that light weight fool ya, she still managed to gobble down more than 28 hot dogs -- and buns -- in 10 minutes to win an eating contest in suburban Bloomingdale, IL.
The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports the Tucson, Ariz., native won Saturday's qualifying round. She now advances to the Nationals on July 4th which will take place at New York's Coney Island.
Also, Lesco set a new Illinois record and beat Eric "Badlands" Booker. Eric, who weighs about four times the weight of Lesco, was only able to consume 27 hot dogs.
After winning, Lesco said, "I can't wait to burp."
