Sumo


The NPR sports show Only a Game has a 6 1/2-minute segment on Sumo.  It's largely a primer on the sport but also focuses a lot on Asashoryu, the controversial, Mongolian, grand champion who is one of one of only two top-ranked yokozuna.  In brief, he seems to get himself into trouble such as breaking a car mirror after a match, playing soccer in Mongolia on a supposed-sore knee, and not appearing in the expected kimono.  The story also touches on other topics such as the controversial death of a 17-year old stable apprentice.
