The Sumo finished on Sunday, and for the first time in over 6 years, a wrestler went undefeated throughout a 15-day tournament. Quite an achievement. And with the present Yokozuna (and tournament winner) only 23 years old, we are seeing the early days of a potentially great wrestler.
You haven’t got this far have you? Sorry. Here are the pictures.
Wow, the current Yokozuna’s very young. And Mongolian?!? I remember Channel 4 showing Sumo years back. It was interesting to watch, and seeing how honoured the wrestlers were to everyone, in comparison to the US wrestlers who are ‘just’ stars to fans.
…how many days did you manage to attend?…
…ooo, and I see bolton wanderers could go through to the carling (league) cup final tonight :^)…
Yeah, a young and Mongolian Yokozuna! He thoroughly deserves his rank. An incredibly skillful and versatile wrestler. He’s a bit of a bad boy though, and he’s ruffled a few feathers in the sumo hierarchy. His reign at the top should certainly be interesting.
I only went once, but at 20 pound a tcket, it’s not a cheap day out. Not when beer and food is added too.
And dare I mention Bolton Wanderers and Europe in the same sentence. Hmm, probably best not to. But…
It’s about 20 pound a ticket to most top flight footie matches nowadays, so it seems Sumo is just as expensive 🙂
