The 27th International Robot Sumo Tournament in Tokyo, Japan has ended. We won a couple of matches and are bringing home 50,000 Japanese Yen in prize money. We’re glad to have made friends with various international teams. We thank the College of Computing for sponsoring our travel, Fujisoft for sponsoring us in the tournament, and all our other sponsors for helping us in the creation of the robots.
