Natsu Jungyo 2012

Recommended Posts

Takamisakari promised to deliver flowers to the disaster areas of 3.11. On the 7th the jungyo is in Ishinomaki, on the 8th in Miyako, Iwate as a special sympathy call. In addition to the usual dohyo-iri several events are planned, like sumo health exercise with kids and a talk-show. Representatives of gyoji and others will sing on a stage next to the dohyo wearing their costumes. Takamisakari as a rikishi representative wants to do SMAP's "The only one flower in the world", which he often sings. (On NHK the song "Flowers bloom" is played about every day for help to the disaster areas.)

On the 5th in Obihiro, Hakkaido Hakuho restarted real keiko. 6 wins against Shohozan and Ikioi, never letting them grip the mawashi.

Baruto 8-1 against Kaisei, Masunoyama, Ikioi etc.

Tochiozan dislocated his shoulder and is out of the jungyo, 2 weeks to heal. 4 makuuchi are kyujo, including Goeido, who went kyujo in Nagoya with a costal cartilage fracture. In juryo 5 are kyujo including west number one Kyokushuho. Usually juryo down to number 7 take part in the jungyo, 5 from lower down fill in.

Rikishi inspect the monument in Yamada. Engraved on the back are the shikona of the sekitori who made donations towards the construction of the new dohyo.

In these pictures you can see what the grounds looked like as the project began, with the previous dohyo and seating stands having been completely obliterated. In the future there are plans to add a new 300-seat stand.
