The winner of a noodle-eating contest held in Xi’an set an insane record after managing to slurp down 24 bowls of noodles in just two minutes.
About a dozen men participated in the contest, where they were to finish as many bowls of noodles as possible in two minutes time. Obviously, the one who ate the most would be crowned winner.
Before the contest began, a competitor said he planned on eating 20 bowls of noodles, while another bet on finishing at least 30 bowls.
Many would expect the winner to be someone with a relatively bigger frame. However, it was a young and lean fellow named Xiao Li who took first place after finishing 24 bowls of noodles. Li even told reporters after the contest that the portions were a bit too small.
Here’s a video footage of the contest.
