Japan Today are currently running an interesting story about the current dilemma in Sumo Wrestling. The traditional Japanese sport, is being dominated by a Mongolian wrestler named Asashoryu, who is currently the only active Yokozuna in the sport (this is the highest rank in sumo). As a result many wrestling spectators are frustrated by the lack of Japanese competition and blame Japanese wrestlers for not being as athletic or as motivated as their foreign counterparts.
