Play of the day: Sumo slam

There are only a handful of men in the world that could pick up and body slam a man that weighs 190 kgs.

And three-time World Sumo champion Byambajav Ulambayer is one of them. The 156 kg Mongolian sumo wrestler produced this impressive feat against opponent Kelly Gneiting in the 2013 US Sumo Open last week.

Despite being 36 kgs lighter than his giant American opponent, Ulambayer turned on full beast mode, lifting, spinning and slamming in one fell swoop.

Gneiting is an impressive specimen too. Two years ago the five-time US champ became the heaviest man to ever completed the LA marathon, weighing in at 190 kgs.
