Kobayashi Might Not Have Set New World Record

The winner of the last Monday's 2011 Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest was a close and unofficial draw between reigning champion Joey Chestnut and Japanese eating sensation Takeru Kobayashi.
While Chestnut officially won the contest (for the fourth time since 2007), by eating a gut-wrenching 61 hot dogs in 10 minutes, Kobayashi thought he'd beaten Chestnut's world record by consuming 69 frankfurters in the same amount of time.
