SUMO WRESTLERS WANTED

WOMEN!

ARE YOU STRONG, PROUD AND DETERMINED?

The BRITISH SUMO FEDERATION is looking for big women to train to compete in the Sumo WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in JAPAN this Autumn  

No experience required!  

Channel 4's corporate logoThe project will be filmed as part of a Channel 4 Documentary 

To find out more, call 020 7751 7372  

Or email: Sumo@rdfmedia.com

Hi my name is Becky Maynard and I am the researcher for a Channel 4 documentary in association with the British Sumo Federation.  We are helping the Sumo Federation to find ladies to form a team to represent Great Britain in the sumo World Championships.  The British Sumo Wrestling Federation will be training the first ever British team of female Sumo Wrestlers. In October, that team will then go on to represent Great Britain at the Women’s Sumo World Championships in Japan.  At the moment, Britain has only one competitive female sumo wrestler, called Jackie Bates (shown above) – a 20 stone lady who is a true inspiration.  The British Sumo Federation are looking for other strong women to get involved in sumo wrestling, to form Britain’s first all woman sumo wrestling team and represent Great Britain in Japan.   The training and the Championships will be filmed as part of a one hour, one off Channel 4 documentary.  All the training will be conducted by the British Sumo Wrestling Federation in Derby  

The link below should take you to a newspaper article that will give you a bit more information on Jackie and the sport.

At the moment we are busy looking to find strong, determined women who might be interested in putting themselves forward for team selection.  We are looking for women who are approximately 90kg and over; for motivated larger ladies who will rise to the challenge of competing.  Do you know anyone who would be interested in taking part?  Would anyone from Dudley Ladies be interested in getting more information?

If you can think of anyone, I’d be grateful if you could email me back or you can call me on: 0207 013 4598.

Kind regards, 

Becky Maynard
