UK: Champion Garlic Eater

The winner of the World Garlic Eating Competition is celebrating after chomping 33 raw cloves of Iberian garlic in 60 seconds. David Greenman beat the runner-up by two cloves, but missed out on equalling a world record by just one portion. Organiser Mark Botwright says it was only running out of time that stopped him. There were 25 participants in the competition held in Chideock, Dorset. “Iberian garlic is really the only variety that is anywhere near palatable when eaten raw,” says Mark. “Nobody was sick during the event, but the whole place stank afterwards. You only had to stand 3 m away from a contestant to tell they reeked.” West Dorset is also home to the annual World Nettle Eating Championships, which attracts hundreds of competitors.
