Mike, part of the reason you don't see sumo is that it isn't allowed in a lot of the pulling events. If you go sumo on an 18" deadlift, there's nothing to do but put your hands on it and say you're locked out.

I am a little surprised that the WSM folks don't do more wide squatting since they use squat suits, but I'm not convinved one is better than the other, especially with the need for raw power and strength.
