    Nagoya Basho 2021

    I interrupt your unseasonal dose of fandom wars to bring you the transcript of Hakuho's winner's interview (as requested by @Benihana): https://www.asahi.com/articles/ASP7L6JFSP7LUTQP01V.html Q: You've come back with a zensho yusho. A: Yes, it's the best. Q: You had an intense battle with Terunofuji. How did you feel about it? A: I didn't pay attention to thoughts that "my right knee wasn't good". I just gave my all. Q: What did you think when you won? A: Before the basho, I didn't think I could win with a zensho yusho. I'm really relieved. Q: Your family is here? (@Eikokurai: May be relevant to your last post) A: My four-year-old daughter just knew that her father was a sumo wrestler, but actually got to see it in action in good shape. I hope she remembers this. Q: What about your right knee surgery in March? A: I was wondering about the surgery. I thought I would never be able to mount the dohyo again. Q: What are your aims after this? A: This was my 899th win as a yokozuna. After 1 more I will be at 900. With the aim of [that] one win I will give my best. Q: [Your thoughts on] 15 days of a "do or die" basho. A: I went forward with the aim of gambarising for the Tokyo Olympics. Now we're here, and I could fulfil my promise to my father. It was a grave matter. I think it was good to have an aim like that. Q: What is the state of your knee? A: It fought for 15 days. If I couldn't have stepped up [to the dohyo] by myself, I would have always have had regrets till the very end. Thinking about various other things instead, I could step on the dohyo and achieve a zensho. Q: Was there a realisation to end it here? A: Let's not talk about that. Let me rest. Q: What about Terunofuji? A: For the 15 days, he was the only one who fought with that intensity. There was truly a sense of stability, and it was completely different from the Terunofuji who stood on the dohyo three years ago. Q: Is there a difference compared to previous championships? A: All my goals, dreams motivations, and records inspired me. Taiho said he lost his ambition after winning 32 times. I found meaning in that no one had won a yusho after 6 basho off. I set another record, and that is good.

    Trivia bits

    Hakuho has set the new record as oldest Yokozuna winning a Yusho! Has he also the overall record of the oldest Rikishi ever winning a Yusho with 36 years and 4 months?

  12. Thanks a lot and thanks to all who keep this fantastic game running!
  13. Hakuho loves Sumo and is planning his own Heya for years thus he WILL stay in the Sumoworld, at least as long as he gets along with the Kyokai.
