Competitive eater is also a champion athlete

ONE of the world’s best competitive eaters is also a champion athlete. Yasir Salem is renowned for his prowess at stuffing his face and winning extreme endurance races. Amazingly he feels the gluttony of competitive eating and discipline needed for triathlons and marathons go hand in hand. Yasir, from New York City, said: “Some people think that competitive eating and health don’t work together but I say otherwise. “They are both extreme endurance sports – triathlons, marathons and competitive eating are three things that I do well and they all work together perfectly.” Videographer / Director: Ruaridh Connellan Producer: Dan Howlett, Nick Johnson Editor: Joshua Douglas
