For those of you unfamiliar with poutine, it’s a Canadian delicacy comprising of chips covered in cheese curds and gravy. 24 year old Bertoletti, the world’s number four competitive eater managed to gorge himself on a stomach churning 13lbs of the stuff in the ten minute event.
Bertoletti received $750 in prize money and a snazzy trophy, when asked what he planned on spending his winnings on the world class athlete replied that he’d be putting the money back into the Canadian economy by spending the night in a bar, pissing his winnings up against a wall.
Second place, and $350 went to world number ten, Tim “Gravy” Brown who managed to cram in 10.5lbs of poutine. Jim Reeves took third place with 9.5lbs and Pete Davekos stole fourth position with 8.5lbs.
