Yet another major sporting event has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic – the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

This year’s July 4th contest has been moved from Coney Island to a ‘private location’, and will be held without fans and limited to just 1/3rd the usual number of contestants.

12-time winner Joey Chestnut says he’s hoping to break his record of 74 dogs in 10 minutes.  Six-time women’s champ Miki Sudo is also expected to participate.
