This Sumo Wrestler Foot Race Is Just What You Need (Video)


Not since Charles Barkley and Dick Bavetta squared off for some sprints during the NBA All-Star Weekend (followed by a kiss!) have we seen such a hilarious display of foot speed. These three sumo guys get going (slowly) and never look back. Take a look at the video right here:

My favorite is the guy in the middle, who moves as though he’s been told it’s a power-walking race and one foot must remain fully extended at all times. He’s definitely not going to win…

…or is he?

Seriously. Watch the video. It’s terrific. You know how some athletes are just the perfect, otherworldly combination of strength, size, and speed? That’s not these guys. These guys are 2 for 3.
