When sumo wrestlers try other sports, the entertainment value is too intense for the naked eye.
A group of sumo wrestlers decided to try some sprints against each other on the track, or perhaps “foot shuffling” is a more apt description. But you’ll be quite surprised to see how quickly the wrestlers move (they are athletes after all).
It looks like they are about to do a 100-meter dash, but unfortunately they only covered about 40 meters. Baby steps!

Those guys move quicker than most offensive and defensive linemen. NFL coaches take note; sumo sprinting is way more valuable than the NFL Scouting Combine.
