Sumo is an Olympic sport!
Sumo is a competitive form of total contact wrestling, in which the fighter attempts to knock his opponent out of the ring or have him touch the ground with any part of his body other than his feet.
Japanese characters that call the sport of sumo mean “to hit each other”. Most people refer to sumo as “that fat sport.”And But few people know that behind these fighters are years of strict discipline and nutritiona.
Sumo has its origins in 16th century Japan, and this form of fighting has its roots in a purification ritual known as Shinto. Over time, these fights became more common, and it became one of Japan’s national sports. The goal of any sumo wrestler is to one day reach Yokozuna, which is the ultimate title one can get in the sport.
“Sumo is a very respected sport all over the world and it is certainly recognized by the International Olympic Committee, it is an Olympic sport. FOur leadership through this sumo division is also an Olympic federation.” – Amato Zacharia, President of the Romanian Quimbo Federation.
