    Kyujo Updates - 2024 Natsu

    Enho, Raiho, Kiho, Tenshoho, Matsui, Hakuoho.........pretty sure they're legit injury cases. Even considering that some of the absences may be unrelated to injury, that's quite a lot of hurt for one heya (former heya I guess).

    His skills are nice but I really hope he has a major growth spurt.

    Daikosho is a Nihon University grad https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12858
  5. I hope he gets a spot somewhere. That's what, 3 or 4 years he's put in now, and by many accounts is already performing at a sekitori level in training.

    Select & other tournaments 2024/25

    Individual winner is Takushoku's Masaharu Goshima, a 176cm/170kg bulldozer who made easy work of most opponents with his powerful forward moving sumo. His match in the finals wasn't so easy though, as he overcome a strong effort from towering Toyo Mongolian Ogtonbat. 3rd place goes to Kanazawa Gakuin's Yasuhiro Omori, who beat NSSU's Christopher Lee in the match of losing semifinalists - Omori had lost to Goshima, Lee to Ogtonbat. Nihon's Masaki Hanaoka, who won several titles last year, lost his first match in the individuals, while last year's All Japan Championship 2nd place Bucheroon (NSSU) lost in the best 8 to Goshima. Bucheroon otherwise won all his matches, including beating Ogtonbat and Omori in the teams, and looked on form. The team championship went to Toyo University, which downed NSSU 4-1 in the finals. Nihon defeated Kinki U in the battle for 3rd. As the first competition of the year, it's interesting to see who is featuring in the starting lineup for the first time - many new faces.

    5th graders also outsmarted Hakuyozan on the question: Once the match is over, should you give your opponent a big shove off the dohyo anyway?
  10. Hearing whispers from the Daily Shincho? Or elsewhere (and are those based on the Daily Shincho article)? The DS article that is going around is based on a story a koenkai member says they were told by an unnamed source and sounds pretty bizarre......it could be true but I am very skeptical. At minimum a lot of details can get altered passing from one person to another to another.
  11. Sounds like the punishment was just the warning?
  12. This happened in September, so unlikely to involve them.
  13. Lol they already started on reddit. Somehow unable to see the difference between the situations.
