2019-10-23 Sumo USA Exhibition at the JASC Annual Gala

I had the good fortune to photograph a Sumo USA exhibition that took place at the Japan America Society of Colorado’s Annual Gala at the Exdo Event Center, Denver, Colorado, USA, on Wednesday, October 23, 2019. Yama (Ryūichi Yamamoto, 6’4” > 600 lb., two-time World Sumo Champion), Byamba (Byambajav Ulambaya, 6’ 1”, 370 lb., four-time World Sumo Champion), and Hiroki (Hiroki Sumi, 6’4”, > 500 lb., two-time Pro Sumo divisional title) competed in the exhibition. After the exhibition, the three sparred with members of the audience.
