  • Description

    Competitors in a Paris "Saucisson" eating competition - most of them already endowed with generous waistlines - sat down March 13 for a ten-minute gorge that would put lesser men off food forever.

    No time for conversation, just heads down on the bang of a gong, intense concentration on 9 pounds of meat, not an indigestion pill in sight...

    The beaming winner was 151/2-stone Pierre Bigot - he consumed 2 pounds, 15 ounces, of sausage and other meats and so became the 1961 champion. All eight competitors were able to walk away unaided after the meal.
