    Hakuho is content with his runner-up result: "Maybe all have forgotten that I had torn a muscle in the right arm, but the physical unease I felt till June led to a strong feeling of anxiety. I want to praise myself for being able to fight this far." http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2019/07/21/kiji/20190721s00005000494000c.html

    In the end with 4 ozeki kyujo the number was far from the expected over 1700 kensho - only 1552 were actually placed. http://www.jiji.com/jc/article?k=2019072100420&g=spo

    Some results of basho related Tanabata wishes - for spoilers I post it here - bold: fulfilled, strikeout not, italic unknown Tochinoshin: no injury Mitakeumi: succeed with diet - he thinks he is too fat and wants to get under 170kg till Tanabata Tamawashi 15wins Hakuho: "V43" Kakuryu "V6" Chiyomaru (back to makuuchi upper ranks) Enho (get the ginosho) Daieisho (get strong) Onosho (I want a healthy body) Myogiryu (one step back and only forward) Nishikigi (sansho) Tokushoryu (calmly aiming for higher) Kizakiumi (aim for kachikoshi) Azumaryu (I get the yusho) Kaisei (don't get injured) Sadanoumi (don't get injured) Takarafuji (kachikoshi) Kiribayama (kachikoshi) Tomokaze (keep getting kachikoshi) Arawashi (be able to get the yusho - last year he wrote 15○ ) Takayasu "yusho" Goeido: "yusho" Ryuden: "Take care of the body" Abi "Get a healthy body" - not the yusho - he gained weight with 6 meals a day - healthy?

    Endo showed superb skill in that escape - and confirmed his ginosho

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    Shi is short for shite of shimasu, with other verbs something else would be there, and it connects several conditions or the like with AND - but there should be a comma to separate them. These complex conditions have come into fashion again - I first saw that happen to Takanonami before he got to ozeki - but I don't remember the details anymore. The condition set is perfectly logical, but for many years they had avoided those. Enho got his Tanabata wish fulfilled. That he'd get the ginosho with a simple kachikoshi was a given in the media.

    For giving Myogiryu's head an extra push after smashing him down (alternative extra shove), Hakuho was criticized by deputy chief shimpan Takadagawa: "Ugly. He has to stop that." http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2019/07/19/kiji/20190719s00005000320000c.html We can expect the YDC issue another official complaint (because of all this NSK disliked behavior, tabloids assume he will be denied the ichidai toshiyori status)
