US Sumo Team at the World Combat Games:
As I am writing this the time is 11:12 a.m. on Oct 17th Central Standard time, and 8:12 P.M. Oct 17th in St Petersburg Russia.
Tonight, when we are all having dinner, or watching our kids play sports or sing in the choir at school, the US Sumo Athletes will be waking up and getting themselves prepared to battle for glory.
Janelle Hamilton our woman’s lightweight
Tiffany Tran our woman’s middleweight
Kena Heffernan our Men’s Middleweight
Kelly Gneiting our Men’s Heavyweight
I will update the results as soon as they are available to me but for now, I am starting to feel the excitement just thinking about what is coming. Let’s wish good luck and send prayers and thoughts to all of the athletes for a safe competition, and safe return home.
