GREENWOOD, SC - The competition was fierce in the Hot Dog Eating contest Saturday at the Festival of Discovery. A large crowd of spectators gathered to gawk at the contestants as they shimmied, slithered and bounced, squashed the dogs flat, dipped them in water and crammed them down their throats – competing for a $500 Grand Prize.

48 year old Michael A. Diebold of Anderson, SC took first place this year downing 22 hot dogs in twelve minutes. “I never ate that many hot dogs before” said Diebold “I set my mind on winning and I did it.”
 
Diebold practiced his technique with four hot dogs the night before the contest. “I separated the bun from the dog and ate the first two in 30 seconds” explained Diebold. “The second two I ate with the dog in the bun, and that took forty seconds.” Well they say practice pays off and in this case it proved to be true.
 
Two time champion Bryan Crocker took second place with 20 hot dogs. Crocker's strategy did not involve dipping the dogs in water. "Smash 'em flat and eat fast" was how Crocker summed up his strategy. After the competition the two shook hands and Diebold told Crocker “That’s the most hot dogs I have ever eaten!” Crocker responded with a good natured question, “Why’d you have to max out on me?”
