Whilst Nihon University has always been a powerhouse in University Sumo, Toyo University have in recent years attracted some very talented rikishi to their ranks, not least the 2-time High School Yokozuna who's already made a name for himself at University level - Shiroyama Seira (城山 聖羅).

Miwa Hayato seems to be at near the top in most tournaments although he does not (IMO) seem to have the size. But this thread is the first time I've seen his face close up and I can be mistaken him with another rikish.

I am trying to put names & faces to college rikishi I see in youtube. Thanks, Mikawa san for posting these.

Nakamura at mere 166 cm and < 100kg showed some good moves until being knocked off by Shiroyama in quarter-final.
