Saturday, January 4, 2014 - 12:03pm

A competitive eater in Portland, Oregon won big for her skils. But she also holds the title of Mom.

Molly Schuyler is no stranger to competitive eating. Just three weeks ago, she uploaded a video of her downing 9 pounds of cottage cheese in less than two minutes.

"Unexplained phenominon, just born that way, started doing this about a year ago and I guess like a stupid human trick," said Schuyler.

Even as a kid she remembers going all out at the buffet with her siblings.

"We did it so much as kids we kinda battled it out so I don't know we've always ate big."

But on Friday at the Mad Greek Deli on Burnside, she gulped down one of her biggest meals yet. The "Mad Greek Challenge."

This is what it looks like, an enormous 12 pound sandwich, a pound of fries, and a large soda.

Just after seve, the clock started ticking. She had to eat it all in one hour.

At 7:30 p.m., she was more than halfway done.

"If you don't get far enough ahead...not going to finish in time," said Schuyler.

Then with more than 5 minutes left on the clock she was finished.

"The mean was the hardes part, I don't like salami, no offense!" said Schuyler.

She says she's felt better.

Molly won $650 for finishing.
