T Nation

He Regularly Fought Opponents Twice As Big

Nah, its not another Fedor thread, and the guy is literally half their size.

Takanoyama Shuntaro was a Czech Sumo phenomenon.
He had trouble reaching 100kgs (220lbs) but competed still in the sport’s highest division versus veritable landwhales.
Wiki tells me that he finally overcame his terrible affliction by snacking at night.
However, one year later, the association reprimanded the stable for making him eat too much cookies and milk.
Also inject insulin.

Heres a full match versus a 200+ kg opponent.

This being T-Nation, the whole point is obviously NOT, What A Stud!, but,
so there are hardgainers after all.

great Videos- thanks for digging these up.

damn impressive!
