The competition level at the 2006 US Sumo Open was higher than at all past events, with 47 of the world’s top sumo wrestlers competing for prestige,prizes, and cash. As in years past, international teams dominated the competition, as the 18 foreign athletes won most of the medals (13 out of 23). In fact, foreign athletes won every single gold medal (except by default in the women’s lightweight, where all of the competitors were American)! More
