Rikishi in Dohyo

All the way from Japan - presenting these Sumo wrestlers. Here's some info on sumo from you (actually I'm just reproducing Wikipedia stuff. You can always click onWikipedia to find out more): Sumo is a competitive contact sport where two wrestlers (rikishi) attempt to force one another out of a circular ring (dohyo) or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet. The sport originated in Japan, the only country where it is practiced professionally. The Japanese consider sumo a gendai budō (a modern Japanese martial art), though the sport has a history spanning many centuries.
