    Natsu 2022 Discussion Thread - here be spoilers

    According to my file he's the 7th Makushita rikishi to fight an eighth bout more than once, and the 15th rikishi overall. Down in Jonokuchi, debutant Wakasei also fought an eighth bout on Day 14, making this the 31st basho with two rikishi fighting extra bouts. It's more minutiae than asked for, but 2022 Hatsu saw Sawaisamu fight an eighth bout for the second time in his long career, nearly 14 years after the first. That was a 4-4 result, and he's the last active rikishi to have one of those. 2022 Haru had no extra bouts which ended a run of 11 consecutive basho with them, two basho short of the record.

    He was visibly uncomfortable after landing on that left leg ... such a shame for Ura. Left ankle sprain, three weeks to recover. Ura wanted to stay in, but Kise-oyakata (former Maegashira Higonoumi) put his foot down, saying that if he makes it worse it could end up with an even longer period of treatment.

    Press reporting that M6e Ura is kyujo from Day 14. That would give Wakatakakage a fusensho and kachi-koshi.

    Three in, three out ahead of the last round of lower division action. Entering: Jd20e Ariake Jd111w Takataisho Jk2e Nishihara Withdrawing: Ms9e Fukai (fusenpai Day 12) Sd55e Nakaishi Jd29e Hokutoshin In addition, Naruto-beya reports that Sd40w Murayama is also out due to injury, but it must have happened too late for the news to reach the torikumi committee, so Hokutomaru should get a fusensho (and kachi-koshi) from their Day 13 bout. Jk1w Fujiizumi, Jk3e Wakaseido, Jk7w Okuyama and Jk21w Chiyonomichi missed the whole basho and will drop off the banzuke, assuming they aren't retiring.

    J5e Kitanowaka returns to the basho on Day 12, with a bout against Yago.

    Ahead of Day 11, two rikishi return (well, Chiyooga's basho never really got started), while one more has to drop out. Returning: Ms27w Chiyooga (fusenpai Day 1, withdrew Day 3) Jd67e Wakaikki (withdrew Day 9) Withdrawing: Ms48e Hokutoryu (fusenpai Day 10) - he was limping a bit after winning his last bout, but it's not obvious what the problem was. A note about Taiga, Arashio-beya mentioned that the initial x-rays taken in the Kokugikan clinic did not indicate any fractures or ligament tears, but more detailed scans were set to take place at a hospital at a later time, there hasn't been any further update yet.

    As mentioned above, Taiga is out ahead of Day 9, along with two from Jonidan: Sd3w Taiga Jd67e Wakaikki Jd104e Koga

    In the lower divisions ahead of Day 7, one rikishi has returned after a few days out, but four others have to withdraw. Returning: Sd69e Chura (withdrew Day 3) Withdrawing: Ms14w Hatooka (fusenpai Day 6) - took a heavy fall from the dohyo in winning on Day 3, although he seemed fine immediately afterwards. Sd72e Kyokuhozan Jd56e Asasorai (fusenpai Day 6) Jd87e Teraosho I'm surprised not to see Jokoryu as a withdrawal after his left elbow was wrenched to an alarming angle in his Day 5 bout, hopefully he was lucky and no serious damage was done.

    Trivia bits

    Kotonishiki did win a kinboshi in three consecutive basho, but the first was not against Chiyonoyama who was absent in 1953 Natsu.

    A rare tasukizori in Jonokuchi today, courtesy of Yamato who is now 3-0 in his first basho. He is a graduate of Gifu Norin (Agricultural and Forestry) High School and was runner-up in the 80kg class at a national high school sumo tournament last year. He has won with sori-waza several times in team and openweight competitions during his school years.

    A bit late but there was one change ahead of Day 5, Ms37e Omoto began his basho, having been absent at the start. He fights former Maegashira Fujiazuma on Day 6. And as mentioned elsewhere, sanyaku gyoji Kimura Tamajiro withdrew on Day 4 due to a herniated disc in his lower back.

    Trivia bits

    All being well, tomorrow will be Satonofuji's 500th yumitori-shiki performance. If he continues in the role uninterrupted, he can surpass Edonohana's record in the 2023 Kyushu basho, if my arithmetic is up to scratch. But whether that happens might come down to his own age and declining rank - he is already both the oldest and lowest-ranked performer on record - as well as Terunofuji's tenure as Yokozuna.

    Changes ahead of Day 3 - one Kokonoe-beya rikishi begins his basho but two of his stablemates are out, along with one other rikishi. Entering: Sd64e Chiyonokatsu Withdrawing: Ms27w Chiyooga (fusenpai Day 1) Sd32e Chiyodaigo (fusenpai Day 2) Sd69e Chura
