    Trivia bits

    Takakeisho had 2 fusen losses as an ozeki this tournament. From the database, it only happened in the Aki 1956 basho with then-ozeki Wakanohana. This case is quite particuliar as he first withdrew on day 13, being 12-0 and on his way to the tsuna, before coming back for day 15, for which he immediately withdrew, most probably because Kagamisato's day 14 win made it impossible for him to grab the yusho and the rope.

    Almost every rikishi carries injury to some degree, the question is how healthy he is. As to Takanohana and Kise, they also had their own dilemmas: the yosho was at hand and they did not want to abandon. In both cases, the costs of that yusho were their careers. Anyway, it is bad practice for an apparently injured rikishi to mount the dohyo. Such practice should not be encouraged.

    Bad example. They were both injured.

    And he's partial to the odd bowl of お茶漬け ochazuke Would that have anything to do with his primary sponsor?

    There were more tricky situations for the healthy rikishi to deal with: the injured Takanohana vs healthy Musashimaru at a playoff bout; and the injured Kisenosato vs healthy Terunofuji on day 15 with yusho at hand. What would the audience / the whole nation respond if the healthy rikishi beat the injured Taka or Kise? Did they dare to win?

    Lower-division Torikumi Natsu Basho 2019

    13 Daigonishiki (Jk2e) 2-2 Sawaisamu (Jk5w) 2-2   The 10th over-40s bout that I know of, and a first meeting for these two veterans, with a combined age of 83 years, 10 months and some odd days. There are now 15 rikishi aged 40 or over. Gorikiyama celebrated his birthday during the Haru basho, Kainowaka in April, and lastly Koshinoryu on Day 6. I hope people in Fukui are cheering for their only two representatives on the ozumo dohyo; Koshinoryu lost on his birthday but has won twice since to improve to 3-2, while Maikeru is an impressive 5-0 in his Makushita debut.

    Endo went down without laying a hand on Aoiyama today. I do not understand his wild popularity with Japanese fans at all.

    I don't have the source on me, but hasn't Yoshikaze said before that a win for Tomokaze is more important to him than a win for himself? That sounds entirely possible. So Yoshikaze should push himself to win in order to inspire newcomer Tomokaze to keep winning.
