2011 US SUMO OPEN OVERVIEW

A strong field of athletes from 9 nations competed in the US Sumo Open’s Las Vegas debut. Citizens from Brazil, Canada, Iran, Mongolia, Poland, Tajikistan, Tonga, the United Kingdom, and the USA all fought hard. Matches were fast-paced ans spectacular!

Among the athletes were three-time World Sumo Champion Byambajav Ulambayar (Mongolia) and current World Sumo Champion Sylwia Krzemien (Poland). Wojciech Poczta (also from Poland) is the current #3 in the world, too. Several current and former US Sumo Champions wrestled, as well, including perennial challengers, like Trent Sabo (former #3 in the world), Kena Heffernan, Kelly Gneiting, Natasha Ikejiri, and Natalie Burns.
