Nothing goes better with Miami heat than … sumo?
When attendees weren’t busy cursing about the Fed, they turned to wresting champion sumo wrestlers with the help of Andrew Freund, trustee of the United States Sumo Association. Seated on the left is wrestler Yamamotoyama Ryūta, a.k.a. Yama, who holds the title as the heaviest sumo wrestler ever. He debuted in 2007 and reached the top of the division in 2009 and then was forced to retire in 2011 because he and several other wrestlers were involved in match-fixing.
Now, he does the trade show circuit where he can throw matches all the time — it’s his job.
