World Record Speed Eater has Jaw Arthritis

This is the speed eating equivalent of Bo Jackson’s hip injury that ended his career with the Raiders.

A Japanese man who set a world record by wolfing down dozens of hot dogs within minutes has suffered a severe jaw injury due to his rigorous training, making his next title uncertain.

Takeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi said he can only open his mouth to make a gap the size of a fingertip after being diagnosed with jaw arthritis.


  1. McGee, you didn’t see his special on MTV. He can eat enormous amounts of food. He’s a machine. All he does is work out and eat. Any asshat can eat a hot dog but only pros can eat 50+ in 10 minutes.

    And some of those eating records are disgusting. I don’t want to be the guy who holds the mayonnaise eating champ. Yuck.
