Those who ar in-the-know about competative eating may have had their doubts about Nela Zisser's training regiment as she gears up for her 3rd vist to Coney Island on July 4th.
Her recent visit to Mad Mex has given us all a huge sigh of relief. It is this reporter's opinion that Nela stands a good chance to place in the top three at Nathon's, The World Cup of Competative Eating.
Her competitors are certain to be intimidated watching her power down a kilogram of burrito in 95 seconds.
Hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand and weighing in at 105 pounds, this professional model, restaurant owner, former Miss Earth New Zealand, pre-med student and, yes, competitive eater is a 23-year old wonder.
She holds dual citizenship (New Zealand and U.S.) and has proudly competed at Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on the 4th of July for the last two years. Nathon's is the World's Cup of competitive eating. Nela is sanctioned by Major League Eating and has been referred to as "The Alligator" and "A Weapon of Mass Digestion."
