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.
