Natsu jungyo 2016

Recommended Posts

4th time Kadoban Ozeki Goueidou sweated a lot yesterday. He faced Shoudai ("because I lost to him last basho") for 7 bouts and won them all, and then faced Nishikigi and Daieishou each twice, no results given. That was it. "There's still a lot of jungyo left.." he said. 

 

Today, Goueidou faced Shoudai again, this time for three bouts after facing him seven times yesterday. Shoudai didn't win any of them. "Just doing sumo with an Ozeki is a great experience. Last basho my body was moving especially well. I managed to bring myself to a point where I was in good physical shape. It would be great if I could continue to keep this level," added Shoudai who was 9-6 at M5, beating two Ozeki on the way.

Injured Yokozuna Kakuryuu joined the jungyo yesterday. He did shiko and some tube stuff. "It's great to be doing one's work.." he said. Last month he was out with a back injury. "Before last basho I was way too eager to train and overdid it and suffered from fatigue. I realized that my body is not that of a 20 year old.. I put too much pressure on my back and my left  shoulder injury became worse as well. It was painful to even wiggle my toe.." he added. "I'd like to do the torikumi bouts for the last two days of the jungyo, and I intend to lend my chest tomorrow. All I've been doing lately was rehabilitative movements so I have got to get back to business.." he summed.

Kakuryuu is back in the torikumi. Today he faced Hakuhou and beat him by shitatenage to the extreme delight of the full-house crowd. "It's good to be back at work. I am very happy," he said. His birthday was on the tenth so he received a cake from the press. "Since joining sumo, my birthday is always during a jungyo and this cake arrives regularly. Again, I am reminded that it is important to do one's best to avoid injuries and to be able to do sumo, as it really sucks when one can't. I had a lot of time to think about a lot of things," he added.

Ozeki Terunofuji is a rock star. A lot of girl fans were there today in Saitama and were screaming his name. Every bout, more screaming. He waved shyly, went to the other side of the arena-screaming continued. A lot of laughter from the fans. He had 12 bouts against Makuuchi opponents (the most bouts he had in one day this jungyo), winning 11. "My condition is much better. The basho is approaching really fast, but I think I'll be OK," he said.

 

Tochinoshin is loving it.. You can see one of the screaming ladies in the balcony. And the cameltoe.

A giant leap forward for Kisenosato: a small child didn't cry when he held it - dohyo-iri with the 9month old baby of a friend, Genki-chan - same Ki, both have the name on the matching kesho-mawashi, Genki-chan with the date of birth. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1701160.html

There is hope now he can manage the mind control to make it to yokozuna as well.

It didn't cry because it's just a doll.

Short video of jinku on the last day of the tour yesterday. We were working on an upcoming bit on NHK. You'll be able to see it in Oct. Did another one on the all-Japan kids sumo too which will be shown in Sept.
