Hi there Teens Today,I’ve seen some very weird sports, but have you ever heardof speed eating? Well, I just saw a show about it and I thinkit is totally gross. How can they call this a sport? AJapanese guy, Takeru Kobayashi, has won six hot-dogeating competitions. In the last one he ate fifty-three hotdos in twelve minutes. Imagine! He’s probably eatenthousands of hot dogs in these competitions, and he isn’teven fat! Another competitor,sonya Thomas –she’s skinny,too- once ate sixty five hard-boiled eggs in six and a halfminutes! This is the unhealthiest activity I can imagine.And these people win money for eating enormous amountsof food in a short time. Why doesn’t someone stop thesecompetitions before people get hurt?Yours disgustedly,Stacey
