“Bacon champion” devours pound of bacon at Harbor Park

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Wes Price’s title hasn’t exactly gone viral on YouTube, but it’s at least gotten some attention around Hampton Roads.

While the Norfolk Tides continued their hot streak on Saturday night, on the concourse at Harbor Park, Price consumed a pound of bacon in a time of one minute and 53 seconds. “It was fun,” he said afterwards. With only a cup of water to help him, Price beat out seven other competitors.

“I don’t ever get picked for anything,” said Price, “Definitely didn’t plan on winning, especially when I saw the guys who were a bit bigger than me walk up here.”

If that pound of pig didn’t satisfy him, he shouldn’t worry. He won a year’s worth of free bacon.
