The World Sumo Championships are coming up on October 12-13 in Japan. Team USA’s representative at the women’s middleweight division will be Cody Coleman (formerly Cody Stout), who won gold at the US Sumo Nationals. Cody co-operates Welcome Mat Sumo NOLA in New Orleans, which has been regularly featured on NorthAmericanSumo.com. They are one of the top sumo gyms in America, and they regularly produce the nation’s top sumo talent – including Cody herself.
In our chat, Cody talks about getting married on a sumo mat, her nerves going into competition, and how she is able to battle to victory. She also discusses her preparation for competing in Worlds, which will be her biggest challenge to date. We know that she will do extremely well, and we are very excited to watch her compete.
