  1. Guess Kisenosato's Aite (M1W Kaisei) - May 2018

    Day 10 -- Shohozan

    What do yoy mean, Chiyomaru has no chin? He has at least three.
  3. Former Sekitori

    Injuries mostly, leading to a patchy record. He also entered Ozumo when he was older, and is now 29, at which age it is much harder to come on top in the Makushita joi. He may not be able to do it a third time.
  4. Takanohana shinpan-back to basics..

    I don't see him on the Day 8 roster. Is he taking a day off?

    Actually it's a fusensho for Tochinoshin, and a fusenpai for Endo. Edit: Oh! Senkoho already pointed it out. Anyway, I am thrilled at him being on top and curious how he'll fare against his Sanyaku betters in the days to come. Abi is using his long arms to good effect. He has an odd physique, in that his rump doesn't seem to be in proportion with his long arms and legs. Sad about Endo -- but wise to step out if he would only aggravate his problem by staying in the competition.

    For an extreme measure like that, ten times as many signatures may be needed for a start.

    I was surprised that yesterday's win didn't earn him 'Spirited rikishi' points. OK, Aminishiki gets there just by the feat of winning, but Chiyonokuni escaped several times and pulled all the stamina he possessed to lift Daiamami over the taware tawara without letting up, that takes some doing.

    Only five kensho on the penultimate bout? That seems a bit poor...

    Day 7 -- Mitakeumi
  11. Former Sekitori

    Ms2w JOKORYU recovered somewhat from his opening bout loss, now at 2-1. He'd need three more wins to have a chance, but his other performances at the top of the Makushita joi have been less than stellar -- MKs each time he climbed higher than Ms5...

  13. Day 3 pics - Natsu Basho 2018

    He has been in The Netherlands, wearing a T-shirt of a Dutch museum far away from Amsterdam and not a usual tourist attraction.

    Yes, on the opening match Hakuho had a few moments during which he did not seem to be in control, and he could have lost if he hadn't been lucky. It looks as though his movements are a bit wild and not precisely timed -- but he is in the process of reinventing his sumo, coping with injuries. I am not a big fan, but you have to admit that he is a truly exceptional talent, capable of managing his fighting ability and masking his injuries like no other. Even a Hakuho in poorly condition stands out among the rest. The odds are a bit more even, but he is still the man to beat.
