In 2009 he supported the rival candidate, the former, then president from the peoples revolutionary party. Asa became member of the democratic party in May. His elder brother is a member of parliament for the biggest opposition party, the Mongolian peoples party.
For the presidential elections, in Ulan Bator from the 25th to the 3rd, restaurants etc. are forbidden to offer alcoholic beverages. At the general election in 2008 because of irregularities there were riots with casualties.

The present president was reelected in one go, reaching just over 50%. Former Mongolian-sumo dai-yokozuna and openweight sumo world champion 1994 Badmanyambuu Bat-Erdene (I remember him from many world championships, he had many good results) from the Mongolian peoples party became second with 42%.

Badmanyambuu Bat-Erdene.

You couldn't buy a name like that, could you?

Can you imagine that guy walking about your local town centre, people nudging each other, pointing and saying "Watch out, that's Bad man yambu"!

Indirectly related. When I ask Mongolians if they know Asashoryu, everyone replies no.

Do I need to refer to him by his native name?

"Bad man yambu" - there is a song in there somewhere.

Mongolian media report that drunken 元Asashoryu hit a guest of a Halloween party in UlaanBaatar who after exchanging punches counterattacked with a salad knife, A .was injured in the face.
He denies the whole story.
The last time he did it was last year in May assaulting a policeman, he had to pay a fine.

Tospo has even more suspense: he stabbed someone and fled the country.

If he denies it then it must have never happened.

They celebrate Halloween in Mongolia?

Happy Samhain to all the Mongols!

Wait, aren't they a motorcycle gang?

With a salad knife! (Laughing...)

The Tospo story seems to have been the one reported by the Mongolian media and is close to certain false, denying that is self-evident. The main story reported in Japan might be true though, the contradicting reports leave a doubt about what A. is denying.

The present Mongolian rikishi are baffled.

Tospo admits that the first article was false, the above contents of the one that was mainly reported in Japan is said to be about correct.

I'm surprised that this thread was dormant for so long. Inhashi already posting the video made me put it in this thread as well. It was also already in the geinou news.

Asashoryu was recently back in Japan for dinner and chat with comedy manzai Downtown and Chihara Junior. In Japansese, sorry no subtitles available yet.
A topic discussed are hinkaku, getting caught playing football feigning injury leading to forced intai.

The nitpicker in me always wants to point out that it's the nazi version that's the backward one.

And since it's Friday, I can't be bothered to restrain her. :-P

The original Buddhist Sanskrit sauvastika or manji in Japanese, as seen above worn by Asashoryu, has arms that point in a counter-clockwise direction. A symbol of ancient and honorable origins representing prosperity and good fortune.



The version perverted by nazi (the hakenkruez) always have arms pointed in a clockwise direction.

Still the head of the Mongolian wrestling association (for a short while it looked like he'd be forced to retire there as well), ex-Asashoryu at Narita airport announced his girls will take 2 gold medals in Rio, and a total of 4 medals for boys and girls, after 5 medals for all at last year's world championships. http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/news/1635117.html

No medals - no half naked trainer could wrestle that from the judges - and now he retires as honorary president. http://www.hochi.co.jp/entertainment/20160822-OHT1T50253.html

In 2009 he supported the rival candidate, the former, then president from the peoples revolutionary party.

This time he did support the new president, on his Facebook (many articles were in the sumo news about the election because of this), made him popular with the young and helped him win - and got the reward: he was made the president's special envoy to Japan.

Hakuho wants to bring rice to Mongolia and 元Asashoryu soba. His agricultural company (he also owns a bank, restaurants etc.) for some  years now grows soba in the Selenge province - while in Japan he came to like soba.

AS20171004001203_commL.jpgo

In corporation with the zenmenkyo cooperative (their website www.zenmenkyo.com denies access without proxy, their videos are open though), which had also been guiding the soba cultivation (via a producer from Hokkaido, similar to Hakuho with the rice), on the 7th and 8th there will be the 1st ever Mongolian handmade soba festival, a common sight-seeing event in Japan. http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASKB436TZKB4PTIL005.html
