People eat a lot of hot dogs - level 2
Put food in front of them and it is gone in seconds. Eating champions compared their skills at a hot-dog eating competition in New York.
The world's best man and woman were pretty confident about their abilities. They knew that they would do well. However, it is important not to get too happy about the results and to keep getting better.
30,000 people came to encourage their favourite eaters. Eating competitions like this have become so popular that even the mayor came.
Interesting words: confident (know you are good at something), encourage (make someone do something better), mayor (city's leader).
