Man holds on to poppadom eating title

A Dundee man has held onto his world record poppadom eating title.

Tim Stobbs beat 15 competitors to eat 15 poppadoms in five minutes at St Andrews.

It is the third successive year he has won the title, in aid of Cancer Research.

As he claimed the title he announced his retirement as he said he was getting ‘too old’.

According to Metro, he said: “It was harder this time as there were more competitors. At first I took it quite easy until I realised I wasn’t winning.

“I then put my foot down and am delighted to break my record. It’s now time for the next generation to take over. I’ll be at the event next year but in a judging capacity only.

“This year was the first time I was sick and I took this as sign to hang up my napkin.”
