From the USA SUMO website, “Don’t miss the 19th annual US Sumo Open! This is the largest, longest-running Sumo tournament in the world (outside of Japan). You can cheer on 50+ international Sumo Champions from a dozen countries.  Collectively, these athletes have 7+ World Sumo Champion titles, and decades of Pro Sumo experience. This is top-notch, dynamic action!  An opportunity like this comes just once a year in the Western Hemisphere . . with competitors expected from USA, Canada, Japan, Norway, Mongolia, India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Tajikistan, Georgia, Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Germany, and more!  Enjoy Japanese taiko drumming between matches, and savor fresh Japanese food, Japanese beer and sake, while you yell with excitement.  Be sure to catch all the elite action during the MAIN EVENT (1 pm – 4 pm). The OPENWEIGHT matches are amazing — at times, a 180 pounder has defeated a 500-pound opponent . . .
