    Same name as his uncle('s former), Fiamalu Penitani (17, 191cm, 143 kg, American football) wants to enter sumo. "I want to become a better rikishi than uncle Maru. I want to do powerful sumo, sumo with technique." He will stay at Fujishima-beya to learn the basics and aims at the shin-deshi exam for the Aki-basho. Furiwake-oyakata (former Musashimaru):"I want him to exceed me as a rikishi." He wants him to do forward going sumo because at the moment there are few rikishi of that type. "The basic is pushing. I want to become a rikishi who pushes till the end." Since Kyushu 2003 with the intai of Musashimaru there was no Hawaian rikishi. So far no heya as a final destination is determined. From Chunichi
