The media concerning Sumo is very well done - good work!
People will having trouble to access it when they navigate over the LEGO MINDSTORMS pages - I couldn't find any link to the BeginnerSumo page there (at least it's not very prominent obvious if there's any).

Having page and movie on German also would be very helpful to German youngsters.

Yeah, I've just (just) started my second sumo. I'll have to kick up a gear to get it in, in time. I've really began to enjoy this challenge.

Buckskinn92: That is great to hear.

MP: I think most people find the Beginners section by clicking through from one of the News page - but thank you for the feedback regarding other languages - But you have done an excellent job of promoting it via Die NXTe Ebene for the German readers. Well done.
