Champion hotdog eater is champion dumpling eater

Man, the guy can sure eat!

A Japanese speed-eating champion has claimed the title in a Hong Kong dumpling-eating contest.

Takeru Kobayashi polished off 83 of the steamed vegetarian dumplings in eight minutes, easily beating Hong Kong's Johnny Wu into second place with 76.

Mr Kobayashi will take on the best six competitors in a final pork bun eating race on Sunday.

The 27-year-old is known as the hot dog king after winning a hot dog eating event in New York five years in a row.
