Check out the LARGEST sumo competition in the world (outside of Japan) — in Los Angeles, California, on May 21! The 16th annual US Sumo Open features 60 of the world’s best sumo competitors, including multi-time World Sumo Champions!
Per international sumo standards, the US Sumo Open includes multiple weight classes, for both men and women.
Last year’s “Big 3” — Byamba (Mongolia), Ramy (Egypt), and Roy (USA) won ALL medals in both heavyweight and openweight, and they are ALL back again for more. Who will win gold this year?!
