Emmanuel Yarborough named the world's heaviest athlete

The Guinness Book of World Records recently recognized Emmanuel Yarborough as the world’s heaviest athlete. The amateur sumo wrestler is 47 years old and weighs over 700 pounds. The Huffington Post reports:

At 6 feet, 8 inches, 704 pounds, Emmanuel Yarborough sticks out in a crowd — even a crowd of Guinness World Records holders.

Yarborough, 47, is an amateur sumo wrestler who has also competed in mixed martial arts judo, wrestling, and college football.

His record has been inauspicious — he has a 2-4 as an MMA pro — but he dominates the field in one area: heft. Yarborough is the world’s heaviest living athlete, according to Guinness World Records. It’s an honor he has carried with him (along with the massive gut) since 2001.
