A: Have you ever seen Japanese sumo wrestling?
B: You mean people in inflatable plastic costumes that try to bounce each other out of a ring?
A: No! That is just for fun at festivals and events.
B: Oh, I thought that was sumo wrestling……
A: Not even close. I’m talking about Japan’s national sport. It is incredibly popular in Japan, and the current champion has won more matches than any other wrestler in sumo history. The wrestlers move with intense power, lightning-fast speed and acrobatic moves to avoid being pushed out of the ring.
B: Wow, sounds exciting. But how do you watch it outside of Japan?
A: During every tournament, a digest of the main matches is posted online. You can follow real sumo from anywhere in the world.
B: Well, let’s watch it together next time.
