The world's number one competitive eater Joey Chestnut took home first place at the World Gyoza Eating Championship after managing to put away 314 dumplings in just ten minutes in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The Californian said he felt "kind of guilty" because he "should have eaten more" after he failed to beat the world record he set back in 2014 of 384 gyoza.

'Jaws' Chestnut also won last year's contest with 359 gyoza and the 2019 Nathan's Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest with 71 wieners.

SOT, Joey Chestnut, competitive eater: "I feel really good. I think I ate 314 gyoza this year, no where near the record but I was like a good fifty or sixty above the second place and I like them. I wasn't eating as fast as I do some years but I found a decent rhythm and I didn't slow down too much. I feel great now, I feel kind of guilty I should have eaten more."
