Female Sumo in Mongolia

Recommended Posts

Aside from the "Mongolians have entered professional sumo and been successful" angle, that article could be written of any country that has female amasumo athletes. Nothing particularly new, except to hear that there are good numbers in Mongolia. Can anyone enlighten as to whether there is female Mongolian wrestling (naadam, is it?) or whether that has always been a male-only pursuit? If it is male only, I wonder if the rise in females in amasumo is putting any sort of pressure on female participation in Mongolian wrestling?
