Sumo chief apologises after women attempting CPR ordered out of ring

Sumo Chief Asks Women Who Were Reviving Mayor To Leave Ring Apologises Sumo traces its origins back 2,000 years to a time when it was an integral part of Shintoism

The 67-year-old mayor of Maizuru was giving a speech from the ring when he collapsed.

The head of Japan's sumo association has apologised after several women attempting to perform CPR during a medical emergency on Wednesday were asked to leave a sumo ring. In 1989, Moriyama became the first woman to become chief Cabinet secretary, and in 1990 she asked the association to allow her to enter a ring to present the prime minister's trophy.

A controversy over gender discrimination in sumo tradition flared again this week when a referee urged two women to stay out of the ring as they tried to assist an official who was unconscious. Then a woman rushed into the ring and apparently told the men that she was a doctor.

The mayor suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage and was in a stable condition in hospital, according to city officials. The two trying to save his life were forced to leave the ring because of a sumo tradition that bars "impure" women from polluting the sanctity of the arena. Eventually male firefighters arrived with a defibrillator and entered the ring.

He added that that the government must "proceed to a new roadmap will remove the illegal infiltrators from Israel". A temporary order obtained by human rights groups had temporarily blocked the implementation of that plan.

Many have criticised the sumo tradition via social media, including user @komichi2, who lambasted the association on Twitter for "viewing formal tradition as being more important than life rescue". "We deeply apologise", the statement reported by local media said. In a statement he said, "The judge was upset and made the announcement, but it was an inappropriate response because the situation could have been life-threatening".

This is not the first time there has been a sumo battle of the sexes. One of the traditional responsibilities of the governor of Osaka is to crown the champion of an annual sumo tournament, so she would always need to request permission to enter the ring in order to fulfill that duty.

The incident occurred at a gym in the Kyoto Preferecture hosting a Japan Sumo Association event on Wednesday.
