 Japan will hold sumo between the Tokyo Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games


It is revealed that the competition, called sumo wrestling, will be held from August 12 to 13 at the national technical museums of the two countries in Tokyo. This is the place where the Sumo Association of Japan is located, and it is also the most important sumo arena in Japan. The boxing match of the Olympic Games will also be held here.

At a press conference held at the national technology museums of the two countries on the same day, Hiroshi Hiroto, vice president of the Tokyo Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games, said that sumo wrestling is not only a traditional sport in Japan, but also one of the most important traditional cultural events in Japan. During the two-day competition, the organizing committee will provide English explanations on the spot so as to let more countries and regions know about the sport.

The organizing committee also invited two Mongolian born sumo champion Bai Pengxiang and he Longli Sanlang to attend the conference. Bai Pengxiangs father won a silver medal in freestyle wrestling at the 1968 Olympic Games. The Tokyo Olympic Games will close on August 9, and the Paralympic Games will open on August 25, so the sumo wrestling competition will be held between the two competitions. Japan Sumo Association President octagonal Xinfang said that sumo has a history of more than 600 years. With the help of the Tokyo Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, I hope this sumo competition can promote international cultural exchanges. The Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games held sumo wrestling competitions during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, perhaps learning from the experience of Wushu competitions held during the Beijing Olympic Games. However, the Beijing 2008 Wushu competition is held during the Olympic Games. The competition is hosted by the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee and the International Wushu Federation and hosted by the Chinese Wushu Association.
