Recognize these rikishi in a music video

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure whether this belongs in Ozumo Discussions, but here's a little inter-basho quiz for you people:

Today I found out that a video for a Polish pop song from the 90s (1994, to be exact) contains several couple-of-seconds shots showing real ozumo rikishi. Who can help me recognize some of them?

If the song/video seems too long or too annoying, here's where you can find the sumo shots:

0:20

1:45

3:00 (yumitori-shiki)

3:49 (sanyaku soroi-bumi)

Here is the song. 3, 2, 1... GO!!!

The left and center rikishi in the soroi-bumi look like Kitanoumi and Wajima.

The first two snippets look like Mienoumi and possibly Kitanoumi. Can't tell who the third rikishi in the soroi-bumi is, but the wise one is correct about Wajima and Kitanoumi.

Not sure who the yumitori guy is...

The rikishi on the right during sanyaku soroi-bumi is Daikirin.

Agree. It is the old country boy.
