    Preparations of the Y/O - November 2015

    I understand the desire from you, sumo fans, but it is not going to happen. His popularity is not what it used to be, he needs go up the ranks in one of the parties. Realistically, there are to many obstacles. And i am not sure he wants to pursue a politlcal carrier. Ps, one very esteemed wrestler tried already in last elections, failed badly.

    This is baffling. What makes you think he could become a president. Do you guys know about mongolian politics something that i don't know. Please enlighten me.

    The Best and Worst Yokozuna

    Easy one, Asashoryu is the best hands down.
  8. Whats is the word in english eh... Witch hunt, yes.
  9. But still the pool of wrestlers is big and there are not many avenues for them. If you consider the fact that Mongolians don't do particularly well in heavy weight classes of wrestling or judo, then sumo will still be an attractive option for many. The real impact would be an increase in regular earnings of traditional Buh wrestlers, which I don't think will happen anytime soon. So unless NSK puts a ban there will be willing recruits, I guess. Myself for example, I would have preferred to have Hakuho and Asa remained in Buh.

    I am using it on my iphone. Is there way to watch the bouts in one flow. It is pain in a.. to go every time to torikumi. Otherwise it is quite nice, i will keep it.

    Yokozuna hounou dohyou-iri

    Looking at these pics side by side, as a Mongolian, I feel massive unease. Just imagine if Asa was still there. Second Yusho or not, there has to be a japanese Yok.

    Kyushu 2014 - General Talk

    As I understand that is why there is this talk about ichiday toshiori, because he wants to be a part of sumo after. He also said though, there is no pressure from Kyokai one way or other. And this is coming from him not a reporter. Obviously It doesn't matter to me.

    Kyushu 2014 - General Talk

    I would like to congratulate him on the achievement. I used to call him a vanilla Yokozuna, but today I'll take my words back. If I remember right I heard him saying in a Mongolian TV interview that he is not contemplating becoming a Japanese citizen, so he will probably follow Asa's path. On a total side note, as it was discussed earlier, I heard him saying that he once broke his finger because it caught in Aminishiki's leg contraption. As for what he said in Mongolian: "I, a descendant son of Burte Chino and Goo Maral, am happy to be able to repay my beloved Yokozuna Taiho by achieving what I have promised. I am also happy to show that if we the Mongolian people are strong and united we can achieve great things." Burte Chino and Goo Maral are the mythical ancestors of Mongols.
