2011 US Sumo Open Results and Recap

The California Sumo Association hosted the annual U.S. Sumo Open over the weekend. Fans and competitors enjoyed a two-in-one package as separate national (Friday) and international (Saturday) tournaments were contested. The tournaments left California to take place for the first time in Las Vegas.

The star of the show, Byambajav 'Byamba' Ulambayar upheld Mongolian Sumo tradition, took gold in the Men's Heavyweight and Openweight divisions. The medals make a total of 10 US Sumo golds to his record. In the women's brackets last year's World Sumo Champion Sylwia Krzemien of Poland doubled gold medals by defeating Sharran Alexander of the UK in the championship rounds of both the Women's Heavyweight and Women's Openweight divisions.
