    Chestnut dethroned as rib eating king in Nevada

    Sep 3, 6:36 PM (ET)

    SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Top-ranked competitive eater and three-time
    defending champion Joey Chestnut has been dethroned as the winner
    of the Best in the West Nugget World Rib Eating Championship in
    Sparks. Pat "Deep Dish" Bertoletti of Chicago beat Chestnut on
    Wednesday by one-tenth of a pound. Bertoletti downed 5.8 pounds
    in 12 minutes.

    Wednesday's contest was the fourth annual and featured 12
    competitors.

    Chestnut, of San Jose, Calif., is ranked No. 1 in the
    International Federation of Competitive Eating. Bertoletti is
    rated second.

    Bertoletti says he prepared for the contest by not eating since a
    large meal on Tuesday. He won $2,500 and his name will adorn a
    trophy featuring three golden pigs.
