This Day In Sports History (September 17th) – 1988 Summer Olympics
Sumo Wrestler Gets Owned (Video)
If I had to guess, I’d say about 90% of American males were watching NFL football on Sunday. And there was probably another 4% watching MLB baseball, while 5.999% accompanied their significant others during a shopping trip to Home Depot, Bed, Bath & Beyond or some other home improvement store.
As for the other 0.001% of American males, they were in Los Angeles, California, taking in the 2013 US Sumo Open. And they were lucky enough to witness this ridiculous display of ownage:
The man doing the body-slamming is Byambajav Ulambayar (or Byamba). He is a three-time world sumo champion and he has won gold at every US Sumo Open since he first entered the competition in 2007.
On Sunday, he made it eight straight years of gold, claiming top spot in both the Men’s Openweight and Heavyweight divisions. No surprise there.
