    Haru 1943 had 3 undefeated yokozuna after day 12. And the final scores of all 4 yokozuna were amazing too: 15-0, 14-1, 13-2 and 12-3 (+ kyujo on day 15!)

    Terunofuji: “I am the only rikishi in history to have been demoted all the way down to the unpayed ranks and make it back to Ozeki!” Asanoyama: “Hold my beer!”

    Trivia bits

    Last basho, only 10 out of 33 Maegashira achieved Kachi-koshi. An all-time low?
