    Banzuke for Natsu 2022

    I've just realized that Sandanme has only 90 ranks this basho instead of 100. Has this happened before? I always thought that only the last two divisions had a non-fixed number of ranks

    The English commentators- views

    As sport commentator in Spain, I fully understand it. When I commentate curling I know that there are some people watching the sport who are experts in the sport and there are probably a lot of newbies who surely don't know even the most basic rules, and you have to talk to both groups at the same time. I'm sure that it happens the same with sumo and I think they do a great job

    Ok, thanks. I think I still need to learn a lot of things regarding oyakata

    Azumazeki beya folding

    Sorry, I don't understand this. Ushiomaru didn't reach this numbers but he could manage the heya. Why?

    New sumo podcast & channel in spanish

    Just in case you're interested, today at 7pm (central european time) we're going to stream the Madrid koen in 1992, with Yokozuna Hokutoumi performing the dohyo-iri. The comments will be in spanish, but of course video is international. Today we broadcast day 1 and tomorrow day 2. https://twitch.tv/leonishiki
  6. I'm glad to announce the first and only sumo podcast in spanish ever. If you are able to understand the language or you want to learn some spanish or you just want to hear us talking about sumo, here you have an article in my website with all the available links to subscribe (Ivoox, Apple, Google, Spotify and Tunein). Although it's written in spanish, you can easily find the logos of every platform. Just click on your preferred. I have also opened a Twitch channel for talking about sumo (sometimes I play curling games too). We made our first live with the Natsu Basho banzuke analysis and I hope to make some other live events talking about some old bouts or tournaments with videos from youtube or my personal collection. The channel is here. Everybody is very welcome to follow me there.

    New Juryo for Kyushu 2019

    Agree. With only one spot behind Akiseyama and a better result (5-2 vs 4-3) Churanoumi normally would be promoted higher than Akiseyama. Sometimes is really difficult to understand Kyokai decisions. I must say that I though both were going to be promoted and Irodori demoted.

    Poll about Kisenosato promotion

    Changed. Thanks ;-)
  14. Following the Yokozuna Deliberation Council words, I opened a small poll in my spanish sumo blog asking about your opinion on Kisenosato's promotion following Aki Basho. I invite you to add your vote if you want. The poll is in spanish but here you have the three answers translated into english, so you could make your choice even if you don't speak any word in spanish: - Yes, if he finish the tournament as in Nagoya even without the victory. - Yes, but only if he wins Aki Basho - No, until he get two yusho in a row Here you have the poll: https://sumojapones.wordpress.com/2016/07/29/debe-la-nsk-promover-a-kisenosato-aunque-no-gane-el-aki-basho/
  15. I don't believe him! What is he trying to say? Maybe "I'm so good that I am able to get a zensho yusho with a couple of injuries"? Come on...
