Nathan's Adding Women's Division For 4th Of July Hot Dog Eating Contest

Move over, Joey Chestnut.

The women of competitive eating want their own spotlight.

Nathan’s is adding a women’s only division to its annual July 4th hot dog eating contest, according to the New York Post.

Serena Williams didn’t have to beat Roger Federer to win the Wimbledon title, and we don’t think Sonya Thomas should have to beat Joey Chestnut,” said Richard Shea, president of Major League Eating, of the top-ranked female.Thomas, nicknamed “The Black Widow” (because you have to get a cool nickname when you’re in competitive eating), is a regular in the men’s final. She holds records in the cheesecake and cranberry sauce categories.

It’s only fitting this story appeared in the NY Post. Seems to be right up their alley.
