2016 US Sumo Open

The US Sumo Open first rumbled into the ring in 2001, and it has since grown into the largest annual sumo tournament in the world outside of Japan. Over the years, hundreds of elite sumo wrestlers have stomped into the event and competed for glory during more than 1,000 matches. The 2016 installment will only add to those numbers, with more than 60 competitors from all over the world scheduled to clash in 150 matches—including openweight bouts where 150-pound wrestlers take on 500-pound opponents. Of course, large as they are, those numbers won’t be the biggest part of the afternoon. Here are a few competitors you should keep an eye on:

  • Byamba: A four-time World Sumo champion, Byamba has dominated this tournament by claiming gold medals every year from 2007 to 2014. But last year, he was overthrown in both the heavyweight and openweight competitions, so he’ll be on a mission to reclaim the throne.

  • Roy Sims: For 15 years, no American had ever won top honors in the US Sumo Open’s heavyweight or openweight division—that is, until 2015, when Roy Sims earned openweight gold, demonstrating just how unpredictable the tournament can be.

  • Ramy Elgazar: Hailing from Egypt, Ramy is the man responsible for snatching gold from Byamba in the heavyweight division. He’ll step back into the ring to defend his crown and prove last year’s upset was no fluke.
