Super Slo-Mo Footage Reveals The Shockwaves When 450kg Of Sumo Wrestlers Collide

Video: Everything is cooler in slow motion, and when the Slow Mo Guys point their high-speed cameras at a pair of massive sumo wrestlers with a combined weight of over 450kg, you can actually see the shockwaves rippling through their bodies as the two near-immovable competitors collide in the ring.

Despite not flying through the air and landing over-the-top attacks such as those you see in the WWE, these authentic clashes between athletes weighing over 225kg are even more astonishing. It's like watching two cars collide in a head-on crash test, but the cars are able to throw each other around like rag dolls afterwards, instead of disintegrating. At 1000 FPS, the results of the collision are even more terrifying, as you can clearly see how each wrestler's body is reacting to the tremendous forces being applied.
