    Daym, Hakuho is relentless. No wonder he's Yokozuna

    Thank you for sharing this.

    I trained with an American Sumo athlete back in college. Until you see some of these guys in person, it's really hard to appreciate how freakishly flexible, strong, and agile they are for their size. And they get messed up too. Broken noses, fingers, and torn ACL/Rotator cuffs are the norm. Most Westerners see them as just being large men, but there's alot of technique that goes into it. If you appreciate the grappling arts, Sumo is really cool to watch.

    Dam I respect what they do but that’s like a combination of a guaranteed early death. I feel bad for the pressure on their organs.

    Definitely monsters though . They eat like 20,000 calories after training then sleep.

    Is Hakuho the tallest champion? Seems like he'd have a disadvantageous center of gravity at 6'4.

    Such a weird sport. The whole point is to gorge yourself and to get as fat as possible, while working out. I know about the sumo diet, and it's crazy. Basically starve yourself all day, then each a bunch right before bed.
