A U.S. university student is eating his way through school competitively. Computer engineering student Eric Dahl now ranks third in the world of competitive eating as determined by All Pro Eating rankings. Dahl has earned more than $18,000 in prize money or merchandise to help pay for his education. “I’m eating for my education,” he said. Drawn to competitive eating in 2011, Dahl didn’t want to pay for his meal so he signed up for a challenge, eat a 3-pound (1.3-kg) cheesesteak sandwich in less than 10 minutes and skip the bill. He finished in 5 minutes, 50 seconds. — AP
