Is that sand the guy is tossing in the last two frames? Looks like he's maybe rubbed sand on his hands for grip and was throwing aside the excess. Or does that have some significance in sumo?

Great photos - I'm with the other commenters - what is that? Water, sand, powder?

Hi to all WW participants, thanks for dropping by and your kind messages. The last two shots show the sumo wrestler tossing salt onto the ring as a symbol of purifying the ring.
