The 2009 Henderson Sauerkraut Days kraut eating champion, Norman "The Inhaler" Malecha, is from Belle Plaine, MN and was already the winner of the sauerkraut eating contest during that city's German Days celebration. He inhaled the two pounds of kraut with a time of 2:19. Kudos to you with the iron gut.
