A wing king was crowned on a spicy Sunday in Western New York.

The 15th Annual National Chicken Wing Festival was held in Buffalo. More than 70,000 wing lovers from across the world came out for the two-day event.

The National Wing Eating championship took place Sunday afternoon. Defending champion Joey Chestnut came away with the victory for his third straight year. The number-one ranked eater in the world ate 188 wings in just 12 minutes.

But the contest came down to the last bite as Chestnut only won by 11 wings — making it his closest win in recent years.

The first plate of Buffalo Wings was served in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo.
