The US Sumo Nationals 2019 were held at the St. Joseph Civic Arena in Northwest Missouri last Saturday (2.9.2019), and it was quite the event! I was extremely impressed with the depth of talent in each weightclass, as very few had an overwhelming favorite. Also, there were many compelling storylines throughout the day, leaving a lot of drama on the dohyo. I will write a longer, fuller post that details each of these storylines, which will be posted on the usual update day (Saturday).
I didn’t think that I would be able to watch the event live, but fortunately the amazing Americus Abesamis livestreamed the event on Facebook. I recorded his livestream and received his permission to upload the videos to YouTube. Each of them are provided below. Thank you so much, Americus! I’m sure that everyone appreciates your contributions to US sumo – I know that I do!
