Semesters Worth Of Burger King Double Winner

Semesters Worth Of Burger King Double Winner

In an unusual finish Mat Dowling, winner of the Pizza Hut Scarfie Triathlon, has also won the Burger King Eating Competition, as part of the Otago Polytechnic's StudentCard Orientation 2003.

A special round preceded the grand final where spectators could challenge the StudentCard champion -the 'winners' getting to throw cream cakes at the champion as their prize. However 'Jar-jar' managed to finish first and avoided a good creaming, but later rewarded his boss with a spare cream cake…

In grand final the experienced competitors caked in a mixture of meat pie, chocolate mouse and V quickly demolished their 'meals' in a close finish, though Matt behind in the early stages caught up and finished easily ahead of the rest.

Matt, is a twenty year-old nursing student at the Otago Polytechnic and was last seen heading towards the University of Otago hoping to win some of their competition as well.

StudentCard Orientation continues with a free lunchtime concert tomorrow by Francissca Griffin, and guest speaker MP Metiria Turei on Thursday lunchtime.
