I realize that sumo wrestling is a sport with many traditions, but I think it is time for the sport to embrace modern technology in apparel and do away with traditional sumo garb. I am certain that Nike or another apparel/footwear company would do an awesome job of creating the next generation of uniforms for sumo wrestlers. With the permission of team officials, I intend to reach out to the Japan Sumo Association and request a meeting on the matter. Sumo wrestlers should portray a more rugged and modern appearance.
It should be noted that the post above was part of an April Fools’ Day prank. I was not serious. 🙂
