Sumo Wrestlers Hard to Find: The amount of
new blood in the 1,500-year-old Japanese sport of sumo wrestling slowed to a single drop, reports The

stringent, requiring boys to leave home to live in a "stable" with other wrestlers? Maybe. Could it be
that it's hard to earn a good living at the sport unless you make it to the very top? Perhaps.
