Day 15 results, yusho and sansho

Recommended Posts

Kotomitsuki looked very mortal today, clearly losing to Kisenosato, looking resigned to get his seventh jun-yusho instead of a possible second yusho. Asashoryu made that a fact as he beat Hakuho for his 21st yusho. Kotomitsuki can console himself with his fourth 13-2 in makuuchi, a kanto-sho, a gino-sho (twelve career sansho) and of course the ozeki promotion. Aminishiki got the shukun-sho while Toyohibiki also got a kanto-sho with his 11-4 makuuchi debut.

The sanyaku placements for next basho don't need very lucky promotions after all as all candidates won today. Aminishiki (who actually lost today) will be the east sekiwake next basho and Ama will drop only to komusubi, finishing the basho with four wins. Kisenosato and Asasekiryu will take the other two sanyaku slots as both won today. Tokitenku won, but should get demoted from komusubi to M1e with the 7-8 record.

Kakizoe lost to Kakuryu to finish 6-9 and should be a fifth demotion to juryo (following Baruto, Satoyama, Otsukasa and Hochiyama) as a mere shift from M16e to M16w is not likely with a 6-9. Kasuganishiki and Wakanoho were the two juryo rikishi capitalizing on the opportunity with wins today to get the kachi-koshi and a likely promotion to makuuchi.

There was a three-rikishi-playoff in juryo as Goeido beat shin-sekitori Kitataiki and Kyokutenho won against Iwakiyama to have all three yusho contenders finish at 12-3. Iwakiyama made it a short kettei-sen as he first beat Goeido and then Kyokutenho to clinch his second juryo yusho.

Since it was raised elsewhere about Kotomitsuki, let's do a Juryo equivalent: Iwakiyama's 5 years and 2 months between his first and second Juryo yusho ties him for 11th place all-time. Incidentally, of the 10 guys ahead of him three are currently active - Tochinonada (#2, 9 years 2 months), Tokitsuumi (#4T, 8 years 2 months) and Otsukasa (#8T, 5 years 8 months).

No Shukun-sho for Kotomitsuki? I am surprised. He won three out of four against the Yokuzuna/Ozeki, while Aminishiki was only one out of five. I guess they considered it prize-worthy that he delivered Asa's only loss?

i also think that it is rather weird......ok, he is the only one to beat the yusho-winner, but on the other hand he only one against 1!!!! (asasekiryu) kk-rikishi...the opponents he won against (but asashoryu) are a combined 39-66.....i guess one third of makuuchi would be more qualified to win a sansho....

I'm a bit confused why you would try to analyse the shukun-sho awarding by the "rules" that generally guide the kanto-sho instead. Fair enough if you think that giving a sansho to an 8-win rikishi is wrong on principle, but to call it "weird" when it has happened many, many times before is...well, weird, I suppose. One would assume that you've been watching sumo long enough to realize it's nothing extraordinary.

Edit: Random addition...Aminishiki is the first one in over 10 years to win consecutive shukun-sho below the rank of Sekiwake.

Kotomitsuki looked very mortal today....

I had the same impression of Hakuho during the shikiri for his bout. He looked like a deer in the headlights.

LOL conspiracy? I was hoping for a playoff match, sigh... he served these belt grips on a silver platter way too easily.

your are right....

sansho is not a part of sumo i follow closely...so i should not add my comment....

i just did not think his overall performance made him a worthy winner.....
