Recommended Posts

The juniors individual was won for the 1st time by high school yokozuna in-a-row (and junior open weight division world champion) Shiroyama, beating again Tanaka in the final. In the 3rd round of the finals he beat junior heavy weight world champion Kamatani in his last amateur tournament before entering Sadogatake-beya soon. He also won the team title as captain of the Ishikawa team. At the inter-high he lost to Kamatani in the final bout of the team finals, this time he beat him there, the captain of the Saitama team. (also JIJI)

Last year's All Japan's runner up and open weight division world champion Kurokawa (from corporate sumo) won at the adults and also with the Toyama pref. team. the makushita tsukedashi qualification to be gained is lost on him, since he wants to continue with his career.

Interesting may be the sandanme tsukedashi qualifications, the results at http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~cv4a-kwhr/amasumo/news/01-main.html

show also the age: those in the best 8 gain one, but can only use the qualification if they are under 25 on the day before the shin-deshi kensa they want to apply for.

That means joint 3rd Hashimoto (22) and Ishibashi (Kinki univ. 4th year) and joint 5th Ichinose (23), Nakajima (1st year) and Yago (3rd year) have one. Ishibashi may be the only one to think about using it.

Full results are at: http://www.kirokukensaku.com/kokutai/K_GS/24/k_gs3241102SHUBETUSHUMOKU.html

(juniors: http://www.kirokukensaku.com/kokutai/K_GS/24/k_gs3243502SHUBETUSHUMOKU.html)

The tournament with the least available results, the All Japan corporate championships, has the same qualifications. The page above lists only the top 4.

Winner Sakamoto (22, now staff at Nichidai) has the makushita 15 tsukedashi qualification, runner-up Haga (23, staff at Toyo-dai) and 3rd Kamiyama (24) are the known ones with sandame qualification. The first 2 may give it some thought.
