CALGARY, Alberta, June 4 (UPI) -- A Canadian woman won a national eating championship near Calgary, Alberta, by downing 12 hot dogs in 10 minutes and is now headed to New York.

Nicole Anderson of Calgary took the top spot at the Canadian Women's Championship Saturday at the CrossIron Mills mall, just north of Calgary, and will now compete July 4 at the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest finals at New York's Coney Island, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Monday.

Anderson, who said her secret was taking the time to put ketchup on her franks, will be joined by Calgary men's competition winner Aaron Osthoff of Iowa, who downed 33 hot dogs in 10 minutes, and the second-place men's finisher, University of Alberta grad student Lee Vilinksy, who ate 16 dogs in the same time period.

The competitors will shoot for the top spot at the international competition and have the chance to aim for the world record of 68 hot dogs, set by competitive eating superstar Joey Chestnut.
