Kintamayama 31,873 Posted May 2, 2017 The guys were weighed today. Kisenosato put on 9 kilos in 4 months and is now his heaviest ever-184 kilos. Hakuhou added 4 kilos and is 160. Kakuryuu up 1 and is now 157. Harumafuji remains at 137 kilos. Takayasu down 5 and is 174. Heaviest Makuuchi is Ichinojou at 197. He lost 15 kilos since he last got weighed in September. Lightest rikishi- Ishiura at 118. The Makuuchi average has increased by 0.7 kilos and is now 162.2. 11 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

WAKATAKE 1,652 Posted May 3, 2017 Ishiura was happy though that he is not the lightest sekitori anymore. That honor belongs to Terutsuyoshi at 115 kilos. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1817301.html 1 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

serge_gva 43 Posted May 3, 2017 (edited) By the way (and sorry if that question has already been asked before), why is rikishi's weight not reported anymore in sumodb? Edited May 3, 2017 by serge_gva Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

I used only the May magazines (and especially the booklets) of course because they minimzed the number of rikishi with missing details due to going intai too fast to catch up. That's not a problem anymore since at least the hatsu dohyo height/weight usually is present since many years. So I'm happy with any data set, and actually going with the annual directories might provide a regular yearly update if you or somebody else is going to use this source.

Chijanofuji 73 Posted June 10, 2017 (edited) Hi Doitsuyama and all, Using 3 sources I managed to construct a complete 2016 and 2017 height/weight data set for all the current Makuuchi and Juryo rikishi. The 2017 data is from the latest weigh-in on 2 May 2017 as listed on the Nihon Sumo Kyokai Grand Sumo Home Page from every rikishi's individual page The 2016 data is from the official Sumo basho program of the basho that just finished (Natsu 2017), but which was clearly printed before the latest weigh-in and still contained the 2016 weigh-in information for the rikishi. I double-checked this 2016 data with that from the January 2017 issue of Sumo World Magazine (which was printed in late 2016/early 2017 but in any case before the 2017 Hatsu Basho). In nearly all cases the height/weight info from these 2 sources matched exactly. In only 2 cases was there a discrepancy, one (Aoyama) was clearly a typo on the part of Sumo World magazine (they listed him at 160 kg instead of 190), the other (Okinoumi) was a case where Sumo World magazine had apparently used old 2015 data (forgot to update his data) as they had him at 154 kg, whereas the Sumo Basho program had him at 158kg. In both cases I obviously went with the more reliable source (Sumo basho program). http://www.chijanofuji.com/Rikishi-H-W-2016-2017.html Rnk Shikona 2016/11 2017/5 weight change Y1E Kisenosato 187 cm 175 kg 187 cm 184 kg +9 kg Y1W Kakuryu 186 cm 156 kg 186 cm 157 kg -1 kg Y2E Harumafuji 186 cm 137 kg 186 cm 137 kg same Y2W Hakuho 192 cm 156 kg 192 cm 160 kg +4 kg O1E Terunofuji 192 cm 185 kg 192 cm 187 kg +2 kg O1W Goeido 183 cm 160 kg 183 cm 161 kg +1 kg S1E Tamawashi 189 cm 168 kg 189 cm 172 kg +4 kg S1W Takayasu 186 cm 179 kg 186 cm 174 kg -5 kg S2E Kotoshogiku 180 cm 180 kg 180 cm 178 kg -2 kg K1E Mitakeumi 178 cm 158 kg 180 cm 160 kg +2 kg K1W Yoshikaze 176 cm 145 kg 177 cm 145 kg same (height +1cm) M1E Chiyonokuni 182 cm 140 kg 182 cm 140 kg same M1W Endo 184 cm 154 kg 184 cm 152 kg -2 kg M2E Okinoumi 191 cm 158 kg 191 cm 165 kg +7 kg M2W Chiyoshoma 183 cm 132 kg 185 cm 132 kg same (height +2 cm) M3E Daieisho 181 cm 154 kg 181 cm 148 kg -6 kg M3W Aoiyama 191 cm 190 kg 191 cm 195 kg +5 kg M4E Tochiozan 188 cm 158 kg 188 cm 156 kg -2 kg M4W Takarafuji 186 cm 170 kg 185 cm 171 kg +1 kg M5E Takanoiwa 181 cm 148 kg 181 cm 153 kg +5 kg M5W Shodai 183 cm 163 kg 184 cm 162 kg -1 kg M6E Takekaze 171 cm 150 kg 171 cm 150 kg same M6W Ikioi 195 cm 165 kg 195 cm 167 kg +2 kg M7E Hokutofuji 183 cm 160 kg 183 cm 163 kg +3 kg M7W Takakeisho 173 cm 169 kg 174 cm 169 kg same (height +1 cm) M8E Shohozan 177 cm 138 kg 177 cm 141 kg +3 kg M8W Sokokurai 185 cm 146 kg 185 cm 145 kg -1 kg M9E Ichinojo 193 cm 212 kg 193 cm 197 kg -15 kg M9W Kagayaki 193 cm 163 kg 193 cm 162 kg -1 kg M10E Tochinoshin 191 cm 170 kg 191 cm 175 kg +5 kg M10W Ura 173 cm 128 kg 174 cm 137 kg +9 kg M11E Arawashi 185 cm 140 kg 185 cm 136 kg -4 kg M11W Ishiura 173 cm 114 kg 173 cm 118 kg +4 kg M12E Tokushoryu 180 cm 180 kg 181 cm 180 kg same (height +1 cm) M12W Kotoyuki 176 cm 169 kg 176 cm 178 kg +9 kg M13E Toyohibiki 185 cm 184 kg 185 cm 187 kg +3 kg M13W Daishomaru 173 cm 151 kg 174 cm 159 kg +8 kg M14E Onosho 176 cm 159 kg 176 cm 155 kg -4 kg M14W Chiyotairyu 181 cm 177 kg 181 cm 177 kg same M15E Myogiryu 187 cm 152 kg 187 cm 153 kg +1 kg M15W Kaisei 195 cm 197 kg 195 cm 191 kg -6 kg M16E Yutakayama 185 cm 177 kg 185 cm 183 kg +6 kg J1E Sadanoumi 183 cm 145 kg 183 cm 146 kg +1 kg J1W Osunaarashi 188 cm 152 kg 188 cm 150 kg -2 kg J2E Chiyomaru 179 cm 186 kg 179 cm 189 kg +3 kg J2W Kyokushuho 190 cm 154 kg 190 cm 150 kg -4 kg J3E Gagamaru 187 cm 199 kg 187 cm 199 kg same J3W Kyokutaisei 184 cm 142 kg 184 cm 145 kg +3 kg J4E Nishikigi 185 cm 170 kg 185 cm 173 kg +3 kg J4W Yamaguchi 182 cm 153 kg 184 cm 158 kg +5 kg J5E Hidenoumi 185 cm 156 kg 185 cm 160 kg +4 kg J5W Azumaryu 191 cm 156 kg 191 cm 159 kg +3 kg J6E Chiyoo 179 cm 153 kg 179 cm 155 kg +2 kg J6W Tsurugisho 183 cm 170 kg 183 cm 170 kg same J7E Asanoyama 189 cm 159 kg 189 cm 162 kg +3 kg J7W Daiamami 185 cm 180 kg 185 cm 181 kg +1 kg J8E Seiro 186 cm 140 kg 185 cm 141 kg +1 kg J8W Aminishiki 184 cm 142 kg 184 cm 142 kg same J9E Chiyootori 179 cm 179 kg 179 cm 174 kg -5 kg J9W Kotoeko 177 cm 132 kg 177 cm 136 kg +4 kg J10E Rikishin 190 cm 156 kg 190 cm 160 kg +4 kg J10W Amakaze 185 cm 202 kg 185 cm 208 kg +6 kg J11E Terutsuyoshi 168 cm 116 kg 168 cm 115 kg -1 kg J11W Satoyama 175 cm 121 kg 175 cm 123 kg +2 kg J12E Ryuden 189 cm 148 kg 189 cm 150 kg +2 kg J12W Kitataiki 184 cm 150 kg 184 cm 148 kg -2 kg J13E Homarefuji 180 cm 165 kg 180 cm 166 kg +1 kg J13W Asahisho 174 cm 138 kg 175 cm 138 kg same (height +1 cm) J14E Meisei 180 cm 140 kg 180 cm 141 kg +1 kg J14W Takagenji 191 cm 152 kg 191 cm 160 kg +8 kg Ms4W Amuru 191 cm 133 kg ? ?

Asashosakari 14,323 Posted June 10, 2017 That reminds me that I've been meaning to ask - after my earlier exchange with Doitsuyama, has anybody else already decided to tackle the 2015/2016/2017 rikishi directories? If not, I'll endeavour to get at least one done in the current inter-basho break. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

Chijanofuji 73 Posted June 10, 2017 (edited) 7 hours ago, Bumpkin said: Chijanofuji: Sumo World magazine still exists? Yes, it never ceased to exist. It just became hard to obtain for those of us (including me) who do not live in Japan... Apparently it is still sold at the Kokugikan during the basho and theoretically (according to the inside of the magazine itself) it is even possible to subscribe in and outside of Japan "by sending cash by registered mail (dollars or yen) or by international postal money orders. This saves time and money both for Sumo World and subscribers".. yeah right... I (and many other former subscribers outside of Japan who had a subscription in the past and then suddenly stopped receiving issues) am not going down that road with Clyde again, though...
