Story

Speaking of which, did you know that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been canceled?

I know. I was so shocked when I heard the news. But they're actually postponing it, not canceling it.

Yeah. That's right.
It's probably going to be held in 2021.

If it's held properly, I'm looking forward to it.

Victory or defeat will come when one of them finally defeats the other or gets their opponent out of the soil.

I see.
Is sumo a sport that has existed in Japan for a long time?

Of course. There are professional sports in Japan, including soccer and baseball, but the oldest one is this sumo.
The sumo itself has been around for over a thousand years.

Really?
It's a very historic sport. That's why it's called Japan's national sport.

  28. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
