2013 US SUMO OPEN OVERVIEW

Nearly 4,000 people showed up to watch, at a venue with 3,000 seats. The packed crowd saw Byamba continued his amazing winning streak, by capturing the gold medal for the 7th year in a row, completely unprecedented! Byamba’s unforgettable “Sumo Slam” (which even shook the internet!) brought sumo awareness worldwide to a new level.

Many of the huge crowd were standing room only, and some people that were turned away at the door (once the venue was over-sold) filled nearby rooftops and parking garages, as everyone scrambled to get a glimpse of the 104 sumo matches that took place in a three-hour period! More
