"I believe the children are our future."

The IFOCE shares this sentiment and that is why, as an institution, it is so excited about the prospects of Patrick Bertoletti.

Bertoletti brings the passion of youth, and a strong jaw, to every contest he enters. But he is always respectful of the elder eaters, quietly watching them to learn their secrets and the way of this world.

Since January of 2006, he has shown a tremendous surge in power on the circuit, and has defeated every other gurgitator. Most notably, Bertoletti has shown a fortitude possessed by few, if any, other competitors with his victories at the La Costena "Feel the Heat" Jalapeno Eating Championships. With his current jalapeno record of 275 in 8-minute, Pat Bertoletti has cemented his name in the competitive eating history books.

Pat started out as sweet specialist, but quickly molded into a threat across all disciplines. Case in point: no one on the planet holds more world records than Bertoletti (see below).

There is still one championship that he has not called his own, however, and that is the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest; the holy grail of competitive eating. Pat vows that with each new record, he gets closer to the holding the Mustard Yellow Belt. Is this his year?
