    Top 10 Sumo Records Hatsu 2021 Edition

    I wonder if you can add one line on the juryo zenshao yusho?

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2021

    My impression is that there was no sansho at all for Aki 2018.

    Corona and sumo

    More than 7500 new confirmed cases yesterday. They should cancel this basho. The vaccine is coming, do the best to avoid being taken down by the virus.

    It seems it's getting worse and worse everywhere ......

    Corona and sumo

    Now more than two thousands new cases a day. Will the January basho be canceled? It seems vaccinations will not be available to the public until March.

    YDC convenes after November 2020

    Hakuho's performance in 2019 (51 wins and 2 Y) was probably the best among all makuuchi. His performance this year was affected by the Covid 19, in my opinion. With the current speed of spreading of the epidemic, the January basho will probably be canceled. By March they may have the vaccine and everything back to normal, including Hakuho and Kakuryu's performance on dohyo.

    Minimum Kachi-Koshi forever

    How fast will be the promotion if he keeps winning without a single loss?
  8. Lack of high level keiko because of the virus.
  9. Four top guys out. The virus is to be blamed. Will the rikishies be among the first group of people to have the vaccine?

    Nokozuna again?

    As I said before, an ozeki has 3 consecutive bad basho to lose his rank for good (but can still choose to remain as a active rikishi). A yokozuna should be given at least 3 consecutive kyujo before entering a basho in which his performance must satisfy the NSK. In addition, a yokozuna should yusho at least once every 6 bashos.

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    An ozeki has three bashos to keep or resume his rank. Maybe a yokozuna should be given four bashos.

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    For Kakuryu, next January basho will probably be his last one as a active rikishi. For Hakuho, he still can yusho next January. But as a GOAT, I think he should take at least one yusho plus one jun-yusho in one year.

    Nokozuna again?

    Any other country has such a law that you have to obtain an agreement from your home country before you can apply for citizenship from another country?

    Haru 2021 Osaka bound

    By March next year at least the vulnerable population including rikishi are expected to be vaccinated. If not the Haru basho, the summer basho will be back to normal. The post infection immunity seems strong because very few got infected again. The vaccine should be very effective too.

    Nokozuna again?

    Kakuryu is not bad at all. Until now, he has makekoshi to 6 rikishi (with more than 3 meetings), who are Asashoryu, Hakuho, Kisenosato, Harumafuji, and 3 retired ozeki plus 1 below ozeki. In the current banzuke, he only makekoshi to Hakuho. He has 6 yusho under his belt, no shame record in Hakuho era.

    Haru 2021 Osaka bound

    Covid19 vaccine will be available soon. With most people injected the vaccine, things will be back to normal.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    If Shodai wins today he will make an ozeki? Since two consecutive yushos from an ozeki makes a yokozuna, two consecutive jun-yushos (or better) can be a good standard for a sekiwake to make an ozeki. By the way, was there any one below ozeki who got two consecutive yushos?

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    Ake and Taka had 21:21 record.
  19. Mostly because a really good rikishi will not stay in juryo for long. However, as someone had said, rikishies like Asashoryu or Hakuho will not be promoted out of Makuuchi.

    Exactly. It was my first name before I went to school.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    In Chinese mythology, phoenix (凤) is the king of all birds and she gave birth to a giant peacock and a giant bird called Peng (鹏). However, the great ancient Chinese philosopher Zhuang Zi wrote: "In the Northern Sea there lived a giant fish called 'Kun' (鲲) whose size was over many thousands miles. The 'Kun' transformed into a giant bird called 'Peng' (鹏) whose size was over many thousands miles. When the 'Peng' flied, his wings were like clound covering the heaven."
  22. If he gets a 13-wins non yusho in Sept and a yusho in Nov, this basho's 12-wins junyusho will be a plus when the NSK considers whether to promote him.

    Three years ago he was very much hyped when achieving three consecutive double digits winnings.

    Sure, but also a poor strategy. Kind of cheating if deliberately mukiryoku.

    No idea whether his knee injury is an old one or a new one. Probably an old one that gets worse day by day. No good.
