Yamamotoyama Ryūta (Yama) putting on a funny exhibition at US Sumo 2016!
Yamamotoyama Ryūta (born May 8, 1984 as Yamamoto Ryūichi) is a former sumo wrestler from the city of Saitama in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. Making his professional debut in January 2007, he reached the top makuuchi division in January 2009. His highest rank was maegashira 9. At 265 kg (584 lb), he is the heaviest Japanese-born sumo wrestler ever!
Nearly 60 competitors from all over the world will square off in 150+ matches!
Dozens of past and current national and world champions from USA, Norway, German, Belgium, Poland, Russia, Egypt, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, and Japan are signed up to compete.
Last year’s heroes are returning. From 2007-2014, Byamba / Ulambayar Byambajav (the 4-time World Sumo Champion) won US Sumo Open gold — for 8 years in a row!
Egyptian behemoth Ramy Elgazar grabbed the heavyweight gold, with a shocking victory over Byamba. Can he do it again?
The openweight class showcases real sumo skill, with 150-pounders facing 500-pound opponents. You’ll see that it takes more than size alone to win!
The US Sumo Open will be held for the 3rd year in a row at the Walter Pyramid, a dynamic venue with great views from all angles, and the largest big screen in ALL of college sports, nationwide, so you’ll catch instant replays and sumo videos throughout the tournament!
