How many loose-meat sandwiches do you think you could eat in 10 minutes?

A group of hungry folk in Ottumwa found out, Saturday, as the town played host to a Major League Easting event, the 2018 World Championship Canteen Sandwich Eating Contest.

Gideon Oji, from Morrow, Georgia, was the champion. He downed 18 and a half sandwiches from Canteen in the Alley, a local restaurant, winning the top prize of $2,000.

Oji's next closest competitor only got down 15.

The Major League Eating event was put together with help from the Greater Ottumwa Convention and Visitors Bureau.
