    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Slightly overshadowed by his M17 compatriot but Kiribayama has really turned it around this basho.

    They are there at least near the end of Makushita, so maybe around 2pm?

    Games Talk - Hatsu 2020

    There's always the chance that he gets Ura'd halfway through the basho though. He's just gonna get bent the wrong way one day. Everyone is such a hot mess of injury though, its so hard to figure out what's going to happen now. I used to be able to remember all the big injuries being carried by everyone but not anymore...

    Fukurou memorial kyujo rikishi list - Hatsu 2020

    The oyakata said that he has pain in both elbows. The aim was to enter until just up until now, and had to let him go kyujo. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/lnews/takamatsu/20200110/8030005572.html

    Ishiura keiko violence - the next scandal

    What a language 高さがない方がケガはしないんじゃない? Literal translation: Would it not be that (the dohyo) was not high there would not be injuries?

    Hakuho Applying for Japanese Citizenship

    A little too early for hatsu preparation so I write the post in this thread but Hakuho found himself surrounded by reporters writing his goals on colored papers. (I guess this is banzuke related actually, so if someone wants to move it...) Now that we're moving into the 'olympic year', Hakuho's target is no longer just to keep going until the olympics. After the 43rd yusho at kyushuu basho he wrote down '50th' on the colored paper. "You guys caused me to write this" he said with a smile. "What I want to say is that Kyushuu basho is one thing that made me confident, or that I can still do it. You can say I've become a blocking wall for the young guys." "After the olympics, I can see the target to set my sight on. The dream to chase. If I make it 50 (yusho), then I think I can keep my motivation after the olympics are finished. But its a big thing to say, man" About the kachiage and harite criticism - "I completely don't understand. I'm just doing my own sumo. It's not called a banned move, right?" About the rikishi he has his eyes on - New sekiwake Asanoyama, New komusubi Daieisho, own deshi Enho "It's good to have a great big wall. In the respect I'll steadily do keiko to block the way (for them, and be that wall). This year was 2 yusho, next year 3. Step by step to rise upwards" giving a confident laugh.
