Becoming Sumo

(vimeo link)

Abdelrahman Shalan is the first professional sumo wrestler from Africa, or the Middle East. Born in Egypt, he left his family at age 16 to live and train in Japan. He is now known as Ōsunaarashi, which translates to The Great Sandstorm. It’s not the kind of dream most of us could relate to, but he is putting his all into making it happen. -via Laughing Squid
