RADCLIFF, Ky. (WDRB)- They're the world's best eaters, and on Saturday they feasted on hard-boiled eggs.

WDRB photojournalist Lee Atherton stopped by the Radcliff fall festival, where hundreds gathered to see a new world record.

The previous world record, held by Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas, was set in 2003 with 65 eggs in 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

In the first-ever World Hard Boiled Egg-Eating Championship, Joey Chestnut devoured the world record with 141 eggs in 8 minutes.

Miki Sudo broke the women's world record with 104 eggs.

Radcliff native Nick Holeman finished with 24 eggs.

Chestnut, the top eater in Major League Eating, took home the grand prize of $1,500.
