He weighs just 132 pounds but he sure can pack away those hot dogs.

For the fourth straight year, Takeru Kobayashi of Japan has won Nathan's Famous hot dog eating competition.

Kobayashi downed 53.5 hot dogs in 12 minutes, shattering his own world record by three dogs.

The closest competitor -- another man from Japan -- could eat just a mere 38.

Kobayashi employed his trademark method of snapping the dogs in half before swallowing them. He ate an average of one every 13 seconds.

There was some good news for the Americans. Sonya Thomas of Alexandria, Virginia, all 100 pounds of her, set two records by eating 32 hot dogs -- more than any other American, and any other woman, in the contest's history.

The contest dates back to 1916.
