45-year old Hatsuyo Sugawara won a noodle-eating competition last month, when she downed 399 mini-bowls of noodles in 10 minutes. Each bowl had 10 grams of soba noodles; according to The Japan Times, this means she ate the equivalent of 40 normal-sized noodle bowls. It’s actually her third year winning the competition, which is held in the noodle-famous city of Morioka in Iwate Prefecture. Her nickname? “The Witch” — it seems there’s still a stigma that women who can do extraordinary things are freaks.
