Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi out of the hot dog eating contest

The Japanese hot-dog eating champion has been diagnosed with jaw arthritis and will miss the famous 4th of July Hot Dog Eating Contest on New York's Coney Island.

Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi out of the hot dog eating contest Believe it or not, some people actually train for a hot dog eating contest. And the five time winner of the Nathan's Famous July Fourth Hot Dog Eating Contest, Takeru Kobayashi, has injured himself during practice. Kobayashi says he can only open his mouth to make a gap the size of a fingertip, after he was diagnosed by doctors with a form of jaw joint disorder.

 "Tsunami" Kobayashi last year put down a world-record 53 and 3/4 hot-dogs in just 12 minutes. He has become a celebrity in Japan and the US and also holds a world record for scoffing cows' brains.

 The news of Kobayashi's absence from the Nathan's Famous July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest is a big blow to many bettors. The online betting website Bodog Sports offered betting props on the hot-dog eating contest, but Kobayashi and Chestnut must start the competition for action, which makes betting there a bust.

 Many British sportsbooks, such as Bet365 no longer offer odds on the Nathan's Hot Dog Contest. Betting odds on the contest also seem to have disappeared from the Internet betting site, as well. Obviously without Kobayashi this betting event is a no-go.
