Sumo Wrestlers Attend Bicycle School in Tokyo

A sumo wrestler weaves his way carefully around a line of pins outside the Ryogoku Kokugikan arena in Tokyo's Sumida Ward on Dec. 7, 2011. Twenty-two wrestlers from the Hakkaku-Beya sumo stable turned out to improve their bike-riding skills at a class organized by the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). The class -- which included sections on maneuvering, crossing intersections and negotiating curving roads -- is part of the MPD's traffic accident reduction program, though this is apparently the first time the officers have conducted one just for sumo wrestlers.
