    Hello everyone! Sumo fan from Bavaria

    It would be awesome if the real Hakuho was a forum member. But I believe if he did join the forum, he would do so incognito.

    Hello everyone! Sumo fan from Bavaria

    I thought the name was brilliant. Honestly, I thought someone had already used the name before now. I can't see the real Hakuho ever becoming a member of the forum.

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    This is very true but not in my case. I started watching sumo toward the end of Chiyonofuji's career and I still think Hakuho is number one. I thought Chiyonofuji was great and he was exciting to watch. Of the Yokozuna that I have actually watched live on TV, I'm inclined to go with Hakuho, Chiyonofuji and Asashoryu in that order. Taiho is second on my list of all time Yokozuna. Chiyonofuji and then Asashoryu (Many people hated him but he was exciting to watch!) are in third and fourth place respectively. Their are other great Yokozuna but they are not in the top four of my list.

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    I was most impressed by him having a winning record as a Sekitori in every tournament all the way through his Yokozuna promotion.

    Where Are All Of The Hawaiian Rikishi?

    If I remember correctly, he retired after having a broken ankle that didn't want to heal. I am sure others here will correct me if that is not the case.

    Oonokuni Discussion

    Ozeki Onokuni had a zensho yusho and two runner up finishes in the three tournaments before his promotion to Yokozuna. He won 40 and lost only 5 matches in those three tournaments. With that record, how could the NSK not promote him to Yokozuna?

    Oonokuni Discussion

    I remember reading that in an old issue of sumo world magazine. It would have been a much better ending if the NSK would have accepted his resignation.

    Corona and sumo

    I have been seeing reports on a sumo facebook page that the Sumo wrestlers and the Oyakata with covid are all now out of the hospital. Is this true?

    New ozeki Asanoyama

    It isn't just happening in Hawaii. We have a Japanese friend that works in Spain. She went to Milan, Italy on vacation with an Italian coworker just before the virus got out of control in Italy. She had locals there making rude comments to her because of the virus originating in China. I guess they assumed that she was Chinese. As soon as she got back, her company told her to self quarantine for two weeks.

    New ozeki Asanoyama

    I believe Asanoyama deserves the promotion. Recently, rikishi seem to be getting injured right after their promotion to Ozeki or Yokozuna. My hope for him is that he will continue to be healthy and that he has many more years as a sekitori ahead of him.
