Bring a piece of sports history to your home with this Grand Sumo Tournament at the Royal Albert Hall event poster.
Taking place on 9 - 13 October, 1991, The Grand Sumo Tournament took place at the Hall for five days, as part of the Japan Festival. It was the first Sumo wrestling tournament ever to be staged outside Japan in the sport's 1500 year history. The top forty rikishi (wrestlers) competed, including the two yokozuma (grand champions) - Asahifuji and Hokutuomi. But the main attraction was Hawaiian Konishiki, the heaviest sumo wrestler ever, nicknamed the Dump Truck, weighing in at 37.5 stone (238.25 kg).
