SUMO WRESTLING TOURNAMNET

08.29.2017

FUN FACTS:

--Konishiki was the heaviest recorded sumo wrestler in history, carrying 287 kilograms (633 lb.) on a 184-centimeter (6’1/2″) frame. 

--Sumo wrestlers aren’t allowed to drive cars

--Sumo referees, or gyoji, are as interesting as the wrestlers. Like the wrestlers, they enter the world of sumo at a young age (about sixteen) and remain in their profession until they retire. 

--In accordance with the strict rules governing their lives, sumo wrestlers aren’t even allowed to choose their own clothes. As soon as sumo wrestlers join a stable they are expected to grow their hair in order to form a topknot.

--They are expected to wear this hairstyle and traditional dress at all times when out in public

A typical sumo wrestler eats a daily diet of 20,000 calories!
