Takeru Kobayashi triumphed at Wing Bowl XX in Philadelphia by eating 337 chicken wings in 30 minutes.
Before a crowd of 20,000, Kobayashi significantly outshined last year's record of 255 set by Jonathan Super Squibb, according to The Huffington Post.
I could probably eat another 100 wings or so, Kobayashi told The Philadelphia Inquirer after the event, through his interpreter. Not really fast, I'd have to take my time. But if you brought me 100 more I could eat them.
Kobayashi received a $20,000 cash prize for his win. He is a six-time champion of Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest, but this was his first appearance at the Wing Bowl.
A southern New Jersey car dealership will donate $3,370, or $10 a wing, to Philabundance, a local food bank, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Squibb, who had won the past three years, tried to maintain his Wing Bowl crown, but came in a distant second with only 271 wings.
