The Culture Trip has a profile of Yasir Salem which labels him the world’s top ultra-endurance competitive eater. The article tells how his competitive eating career started after his wife Gweneviere Mann underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor.

    Awesome story. Too bad the poor journalism linked to 2017 race that Yasir lost to an unknown named Benjy who ate only 3 less donuts.

    TOUR DE DONUT 2017 AWARDS Adjusted Overall Male 1st Benjy Bomkamp -13:57 WINNER and World Champion 2nd Yasir Salem -8:46 This race is the originator of the Tour de Donut races. This is THE championship race. Think of it as the Nathan’s of the Tour de Donuts. So Yasir won a local tour de donut he thinks he is the world champ AND says so to the press?

    Who is Benjy? How is Yasir claiming he is still the World Champion?
    “These races are perfect for me,” he said. “If you take my two skill sets and put them on a Venn diagram, the Tour de Donut races are in the middle. I’ve been world champ since I did my first race.”
