SHEBOYGAN, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Travis Mizejewski of Amery is the new brat-eating champion in Sheboygan. He downed 18 sausages in ten minutes over the weekend at Sheboygan's annual Brat Days Festival. Mizejewski broke a possible tie by woofing down his final bratwurst in the final 15 seconds.
A year ago, the 34-year-old Mizejewski finished second to Bobby Smith of Racine, by a count of 20-to-17. Smith did not return to defend his title, which gave Mizejewski an opening.
He won $500 and a year's supply of Johnsonville Sausage. He also won $500 for a charity of his choice. He gave it to the Sheboygan Neighbors Against Drugs program.
