Retired US accountant downs 247 jalapeno peppers

Richard LeFevre, a retired accountant from Nevada, has won the Jalapeno
Eating World Championship after eating 247 peppers in eight minutes.

He won $2,000 (£1,078) in the contest at the State Fair of Texas, which was
sponsored by the International Federation of Competitive Eating.

‘I love to eat, and I love to compete, so the two go pretty well together,’
said LeFevre, the world’s eighth-ranked eater according to the federation.

Not only did he prove that he has the stomach for all things spicey, LeFevre
also won the fair’s World Corny Dog Eating Contest three times.

He said his strategy was to mix three or four peppers in his mouth with a
swig of milk before swallowing.
