Takeru â€œTsunamiâ€ Kobayashi is apparently suffering from jaw arthritis due to his rigorous training, and might not be able to compete for the next Nathanâ€™s hot dog eating championship. According to Kobayashi, his jaw can only open to make a gap the size of a fingertip, as it â€œrefused to fight any moreâ€. I wish him the best, and hope that we can see him in record setting form again in time for the contest.
