Day 15 results, yusho and sansho

Recommended Posts

Hakuho won against fellow yokozuna Asashoryu to finish the basho without a loss, getting his third career zensho yusho. The two sansho winners Kakuryu (his second gino-sho) and Homasho (third kanto-sho) met today with Kakuryu securing double digit wins and a komusubi debut next basho. Sekiwake Baruto Baruto managed to hold the fort with a win over ozeki Kotomitsuki, clinching kachi-koshi after a 4-7 score. Komusubi Goeido will have a sekiwake debut next basho as he finished with a win and 9-6, replacing Kisenosato who wasn't doing well in his sekiwake debut, going down with 5-10, the first time he had ten losses since Kyushu 2005. The second komusubi slot next basho will also be a debut as both Homasho (11-4 at M7e) and Tochiozan (8-7 at M2w with a win today) haven't been there before, I guess Homasho will get the nod. Kimurayama won the supposed exchange bout against Tosayutaka, making a strong case to stay in makuuchi with the 7-8 score, so only Tosanoumi and Toyozakura are clear demotion candidates.

Toyohibiki won his second juryo yusho, avoiding a playoff as he beat Sakaizawa with yorikiri in the regular bout. Wakakoyu broke his loss streak against Kitataiki and is the sole rikishi in second place at 11-4. Kirinowaka added himself to the big number of kachi-koshi in the lower juryo half, making Yotsuguruma the only demotion this basho (besides retiring Otsukasa) as he outstayed his welcome to the paid ranks and had to admit that this division is too strong for him. Shin-juryo Okinoumi performed rather bad too with 4-11 which would usually be enough for a shin-sekitori demotion but as he got a start at J7e he will probably get another chance at the bottom next basho.

Stupid question but who gets the jun-yusho?

Asashoryu? Homasho? Or both?

Do they allow 2 winners/runners-up? Or is it decided by an arm-wrestling bout? Spitting contest? Spelling bee?

I thought a jun-yusho was only awarded when a rikishi was within one loss of the yusho winner?

I think both - but I could be wrong.

Is this actually an 'official' award (I.e. do they get a certificate?)?

I have heard (from where, dont remember), that jun-jusho is not an official achievement (as there is no diploma etc.), but just a fact in rikishi career. And there may be more than one rikishi getting jun-jusho, so no kettei-sen for jun-jusho is needed.
