I was looking at the BBC footage of the British armored raid to rescue their men from the militia at the police station and I ran into this on their website.

Bulgarian sumo wrestler Kotoosho topples his opponent, Tomanoshima, at a tournament in Tokyo.
Americans are kicking butt at Sumo, now the Bulgarians are in the game too!

There is a variety of nationalities in Sumo.
Chinese, Hawaiian, Russia, a lot from the little countries that the USSR broke up into, and a lot from Mongolia.
The Mongolians have their own version of Sumo
Imagine two fat guys in only T strings, covered in oil, hugging and touching and grasping and pushing and embracing and rubbing chests together.

At least there's one good thing about sumo:
There is a severe penalty if anyone sees your hang-down during the match, I think its disqualification or explusion from the competition, so they make sure to tie everything on extra-tight.

The Americans have all but retired. I've been watching the Autumn basho and I haven't seen any Americans at all.

There are a couple Eastern Europeans and they are doing reasonably well. There's this one big and tall guy (in the pic above) that looks freakin strong. His technique isn't quite there yet, but the guy makes up for it by being strong as hell. In fact, he's the only one that has beaten the Grand Champion (Mongolian) Asashoryu during this current tournament.
