Nagoya 2013 new recruits

strong lads both of them. They should move up the banzuke (at least till sandanme) with the right amount of technique in the mix.

at least Musashimaru has 2 rikshi to work with for the near future (Morimune the other one).

Day 5:

Mz1 Komatsukasa (3-0) Mz10 Sakae (2-1)

Mz3 Musashikuni (2-1) Mz2 Hiroshima (2-1)

Mz5 Mochizuki (1-2) Mz4 Uno (2-1)

Mz7 Sato (1-2) Mz6 Maeda (0-3)

Mz8 Ito (0-3) Mz9 Koike (2-1)

Mz3 Musashikuni (2-2) Mz10 Sakae (3-1)

Mz2 Hiroshima (3-1) Mz4 Uno (2-2)

Well, that was weird. Whatever Musashikuni was trying to do there while chest to chest, it looked more like an attempt at Greco-Roman wrestling than sumo.

Also a bit odd that Koike didn't get a second bout unlike the other 2-1's, but whatever. The three banzuke-gai returnees have all qualified now.

Day 6:




Mz3 Musashikuni (2-3) Mz4 Uno (3-2)
Mz5 Mochizuki (1-3) Mz9 Koike (3-1)
Mz8 Ito (0-4) Mz6 Maeda (1-3)
Mz5 Mochizuki (1-4) Mz7 Sato (2-2)

Mz3 Musashikuni (2-4) Mz7 Sato (3-2)


I think that's it for the basho. Final qualification standings:

#1 Mz1 Komatsukasa 3-0
#2 Mz10 Sakae 3-1
#3 Mz2 Hiroshima 3-1
#4 Mz4 Uno 3-2
#5 Mz9 Koike 3-1
#6 Mz7 Sato 3-2
-------------------------
#7 Mz3 Musashikuni 2-4
#8 Mz5 Mochizuki 1-4
#9 Mz6 Maeda 1-3
#10 Mz8 Ito 0-4


Who'd have thought the two guys who lost to Musashikuni would still end up ahead of him in the queue...

not really .... he will be ranked lower in jonokuchi than the ones with better records.

for example Kaikoki had a 0-5 record in mae-zumo.

Presentation:

Hiroshima made a rare returnee's appearance in the shusse as he missed out on his debut presentation back in January due to the leg injury he suffered in maezumo.

Sato is now Wakasato 若佐藤 and Maeda is now Ryuki 隆貴 (like his real given name), both to avoid naming collisions.

Mz1 Komatsukasa (1-0) Mz2 Hiroshima (0-1)

Go Hiroshima! This fellow is doing his 2nd time through Maezumo - he broke his leg in a day 4 maezumo match back in January.

start at 2:58 mark-

Completely off-topic;

Hearing that *SNAP* right after lunch isn't the most pleasuring experience you'll ever have. Trust me.
