  • BLOOMINGDALE, Ill. (AP) — Michelle Lesco is petite, but the 115-pound competitive eater still managed to gobble down more than 28 hot dogs — and buns — to win an eating contest in suburban Chicago.

    The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports the Arizona native won Saturday’s qualifiers for the July 4 hot dog-eating contest at New York’s Coney Island.

    The competition in Bloomingdale, about 20 miles from Chicago, was one more than a dozen preliminary rounds before the main event. Eight people faced off to see who could eat the most hot dogs in 10 minutes.

    Lesco set a new Illinois record and beat Eric “Badlands” Booker, who gobbled more than 27 hot dogs. He weighs about four times that of Lesco.

    After winning, Lesco said: “I can’t wait to burp.”
