An article I saw mentioned something about amateur sumo too, but I'm not sure if it meant HE was doing it (or planning to) or whether he was simply planning to support it in his new role.

A total of 8,767 votes were cast, of which Saito received 846, the second-most among the 12 winners. He has been elected to a four-year term, at the end of which there is a possibility he will consider stepping up to national level. He weighs more or less the same as he did when he was in ozumo, which wasn't that much anyway. Apparently he was divorced in 2003, has a son and a daughter and got married again in 2009.
