    Are MLE’ers allowed to participate in such contests? I’m just asking.

    I believe Nick Oltman received first place at the awards ceremony. There was a “Casual” contest as well, which does not require competitors to eat a certain amount of donuts (just to run the course and eat donuts if you want). Al-Hadhrami appears to have been entered in the “Challenger” contest, which requires the entrant to eat all 12 donuts and complete the full race course, but was originally not included in the race placement. Sort of unclear on what happened there. Could have been a timing chip error, or he opted for the casual competition last second.
