No tears for onion champ

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

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.”
