    Women in sumo? Around the world and in Japan

    First think about why there is no professional baseball league for women - and is there a female professional American football league in the US? - I also haven't heard much about the success of the female pro-basketball players

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Remember this guy? That's the present Asakishin before he entered Takasago-beya Since last Kyushu basho Asakishin (now 184cm, 140kg) is Asanoyama's tsukebito and his muscle training coach - as such he helped him to the yusho and his present form. http://hochi.news/articles/20190917-OHT1T50224.html

    Trivia bits

    Tamawashi is all time leader in fusensho - 12 in makuuchi, 13 in all. Juryo Kaisei is now overall joint no 2. with 11, on day 8 he pulled even with Dewanishiki (who had them all in makuuchi). http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/column/sumo/news/201909160000088.html the article doesn't not mentioned if the data are maybe only for sekitori default wins, so we can assume that it is really overall

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Konishiki (3 yusho) has set the standard for the retirement of a veteran ex-ozeki: when the drop to juryo is inevitable - no need to do it before - 5-10 at m7w and still more than 2 years to go from there till he retired

    But if a loss against Enho is that, then losing to a plain sandanme like Daishosei is utterly unacceptable for an ex-ozeki

    Izutsu-oyakata has died

    The funeral service for Izutsu oyakata will be on the 25th in Izutsu-beya, starting at 11a.m. It will be held as a Tokitsukaze-ichimon funeral http://www.jiji.com/jc/article?k=2019091701179&g=obt He was a deputy riji - I would have thought that to be enough to have a sumo kyokai funeral
