Recommended Posts

I thought we had him already in this thread, but I didn't find one.

Finally ending his amateur career with a failure to reach even the main tournament at the All Japan championships, Kounosuke Naya, 3rd son of Takatoriki will be the first grandson of Taiho to enter ozumo, in Otake-beya, as announced earlier. He now definitely plans to enter the shindeshi kensa for the Hatsu basho. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20171203/sum17120321130007-n1.html

he got at least twice as much publicity as the winner of the tournament

Shinnosuke Tanahashi, 3rd year from the Nobeoka high judo club will enter Musashigawa-beya. Musashigawa-oyakata was having an eye on him for 2 and 1/2 years now. He won the yusho in the judo 100kg division at the prefectural interhigh this year: "It is a relentless world, but to please my parents, I want to give my best."

He will start keiko at the heya on the weekend and plans for a debut at the Hatsu basho after passing the shindeshi-kensa on Jan. 10th.

This gets more attention.

With the judo team Tanahashi finished 3rd in the national high school championships. He got attracted to the image of rikishi "Who doesn't get subdued by injury and fight hard and in sweat". "I want to show to my parents and friends at home an impressive figure on the dohyo." - as sekitori on general TV

He couldn't avoid the standard comment, with an addition in the mood of today: "I aim to become a yokozuna that doesn't lose to the big bodied foreigners."

The oyakata: "I want him to make good use of his long arms and legs and become a rikishi that does speedy sumo."

Tanahashi admires Chiyonofuji, who went against bigger opponents and won.

... he says as he shakes hands with his oyakata, a big- bodied foreigner ...
