Sonya Thomas has won another high speed eating record at her debut competition in Asia plus a cheque for HK$20,000.
This will be her 28th speed-eating record which involved consuming 17 chinese lotus seed buns in 12 minutes at the "Whampoa Asia Eating Championship".
The Hong Kong Eating Champion, Johnny Wu, was the runner up. He 'only' managed nine buns in the speicifed time limit. In the semi-finals, Thomas consumed 176 Chinese-style vegetable dumplings against Wu's 74.
Although she has won plenty of competitions (like eating 552 oysters in 10 minutes and five kilograms of cheesecake in nine minutes) she has not yet dethroned the world eating champion - Takeru Kobayashi of Japan.
