Caviar speed-eating world championship held in Russia

Hundreds of guests attended the competition, held at a Moscow restaurant called The Apartment. Twelve people were chosen as contestants by lottery. The competitors were to consume half a kilogram of black caviar as quickly as possible.

The competition was won by Alexander Valov, a stocky 49-year-old man who came to the competition in a business suit. He conquered the other contestants by devouring his half-kilogram valued at £3,100 ($5,000) in one minute, 26 seconds. As a prize, he won 10,000 rubles (£211, $340) and more caviar to take home.
