Prikið held their annual Big Kahuna Eating Contest yesterday and 22 year old pizza maker, Björn Ingvi Tyler Björnsson, won by eating 1.5 kilos of food in under four minutes, reports Vísir

Each contestant was challenged to eat a large burger, a large portion fries and a milkshake or roughly 1.5 kilos of food in all in the shortest time possible. 

This is the seventh Big Kahuna eating contest and the record time for finishing the meal is 3 minutes and 17 seconds. .

“I am about to explode but I feel pretty good,” Björn said after winning his trophy. “I might be ready to eat again.” 

When asked if he worried about his physical health after eating so much, so quickly, he said that although it did worry him slightly he figured it was OK as he only did it once a year.
