No tears for onion champ
WORLD record holder Sean Wozencroft, 36, retained his title at the annual onion eating contest at Newent, Glos.
But he recorded his slowest ever time – polishing off the onion in one minute 42 seconds, way down on his best of 25 seconds.
“It was hard going because the onion was so hot,” he said.
“My technique is to take as big a bit as possible and keep going.
“My secret is to drink four pints of milk before the start. It neutralises the acid and makes it easier to chew.”
