Japan speed-eater becomes dumpling meister

Speed eating
seems to be the coined phrase for the ability to stuff your face with
a huge amount of food in a short amount of time. The Japanese have pushed
it past an art into a competitive sport it seems.

Takeru Kobayashi polished off 83 of the steamed vegetarian dumplings in eight minutes

“I feel very excited,” he told the Associated Press news agency after the race.

I wonder if you’ll ever hear any of these competitors say, “I’m very full.”
