  1. 6 polyps removed from ex-Kyokutenho's colon

    Hopefully he's okay. I have a relative who had some benign ones removed recently.
  2. 2017 Kokutai in Ehime

    Relevant thread from 2004 with the top high school finishers in the All-Japan tournament. Since then Hokutofuji also made it to the best 8 as a high schooler. There might have been others in that period but he's the only one I know of. Is Kushimaumi the most accomplished high schooler ever? 3x high school yokozuna, 3x top 16 at the All-Japans, and the only high schooler to win it. Incredible.....
  3. 2017 Kokutai in Ehime

    Kurokawa finished 4th in the 2017 Kokutai. Can anyone confirm that he won the corporate title earlier this year? I was on an amateur sumo channel and relying on google translating it seemed like this video is described as him beating Saigo to become corporate champ.

    Maybe it's the angle, but Gagamaru looks like he's lost some weight (although he's not quite svelte yet!).
  5. 2017 Kokutai in Ehime

    A great way for Naya to end his amateur career! It will be interesting to see what Byamba can do with more weight. He's had some very nice results for someone who I believe is not much over 100kg.

    Tottori-Ishikawa prelim Aomori prelim
  7. Latest kabu-babu changes

    Oyama oyakata sure knows his kimarite
  8. Former Juryo Wakanoshima intai

    Also the guy to snap Yutakayama's 17-0 from debut winning streak. I hadn't realised that he's such a babyface
  9. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    A little lower and I'd diagonse it as a broken heart
  10. Great post! Is it fair to say that most of the primary school stars who never did much after that were getting by mainly on being way bigger than the competition?
  11. New Juryo for Kyushu 2017

    I take it that Yago is safe then?
  12. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2017

    Looking at where comparably ranked 7-0 sandamne rikishi ended up, I imagine that Enho will be ranked around Ms15. That's a pretty big jump in opposition quality and I'd expect multiple losses next tournament. It will be interesting to see how he deals with the tougher opposition, and how much, if at all, he can add to his consecutive win streak.
  13. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    I'll take competitiveness (even if it's wacky) over dominance (even if we get to see flawless Hak sumo) almost every time
  14. Rikishin intai

    Wow, so young, and after just having been a sekitori....didnt expect that at all
  15. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2017

    Definitely agree on not being impressed by Shoji....
