kyujo list for the Natsu Jungyo:

, Ichinojou,

i think we can safely say most of these guys were injured during the basho as well..

No word yet about the injury, but about what caused his problems. During the basho the heat was named as the reason for Ichinojo's bad performance, but he now tells what was wrong: lack of self-discipline - he couldn't resist the sweets and ended up with maybe 230kg at the basho. http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2018/08/02/kiji/20180802s00005000170000c.html

He also couldn't resist getting pushed over the tawara; At least not in the first week.

Does anyone know if Ichinojo's tendency to give up so easily at the edge is related to his back troubles? I cheer for Ichinojo, so it frustrates me.

Ikioi is participating in the jungyo and is very popular. He has a right foot toe injury (a lot of bed corners in sumo lately?) and an ankle injury as well so he isn't doing any training bouts but is lending his chest to the lower rankers and doing the fundamentals dohyo-side, moving his body well. Today he was out early. "I want to give out as many autographs as possible.." he said. His fiancee the professional golfer is doing very well at the moment. "I don't want her to lose concentration during a tournament so we communicate mostly by very short e-mails. Even when we meet, she's stoic and an incredible person. She's either on the golf course or sleeping- I see her gambarize daily. That world has its good days and bad days so I just hope she returns home safely and without injuries," he said. The pain from his toe is keeping him off the dohyo, but he says he will do all he can outside the dohyo for now. "He's such a nice lad," said someone who got his autograph.

Injured Yokozuna Kakuryuu entered the training dohyo for the first time yesterday, lending his chest to Yutakayama . "It's important to feel the sand on one's foot.." he said. "It was my third straight Nagoya basho kyujo.. I want to build my body seriously for the Aki Basho. I also want to be in contention for some records.." he added, hinting at the "most wins in a year" record where he currently is one win (41)  behind Tochinoshin (42).

 

Yutakayama: "Please, no more!!"  Has anyone else noticed that Nishikigi is always in the background in all photos??

For the 6th in Suwa, measures against the heat are considered: the basho is held outside, to create the feeling of old times.

20 makuuchi and 5 juryo rikishi may stay in the homes of citizens. Hakuho and Kakuryu would like to, but Mitakeumi will stay at a ryokan, because he plans a shrine visit to the Suwa-taisha.

Air conditioning is getting installed for the rikishi guests in Shimosuwa -  this place is for Shohozan and a tsukebito http://www.shinmai.co.jp/news/nagano/20180804/KT180803GJI090009000.php

Yutakayama did some butsugari keiko today with Yokozuna Kakuryuu, just like yesterday. Today in his home town of Niigata, he did it for seven minutes, while yesterday their session lasted for only 4 minutes. His right knee injury is not fully healed but he went at it with vigor. "I revere the yokozuna and I could feel his tough love," he said. The coming basho, he plans to beat his first Yokozuna. "Whoever my opponent may be, I will be going all out. I'd like to show what I can," he added.

Nagoya yusho winner Mitakeumi had a triumphant homecoming today in Nagano, as 6000 cheering fans greeted him with shouts of "Congratulations on your yusho!!" and the likes. He also entered the training ring for the first time since the jungyo started, facing Shouhouzan and others, 5-3. He was seen showing some nice throws, but "My movements are still rigid.. I can't move forward. I will go about it while being conscious of my first step, " he said.

Aaand, guess who is in the background.. Again..

Yokozuna Kisenosato lent his chest to Juryo Chiyonoumi and others. "My body is beginning to move fairly well.." he said.

Mitakeumi  made that visit - and guess who was with him doing his own shrine visit - to pray for a comeback ? Sokokurai - kyujo so far, he joined the jungyo now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHcBu9q6CJE

And Mitakeumi no longer evaded the hard part of training: his permanent torikumi partner Goeido gave him a kawaigari butsukari-geiko lesson

Kisenosato finally started with serious training. He faced three Makuuchi rikishi and was 12-2. 4-2 against Daieishou,  1-0 against Shoudai and 7-0 against Sadanoumi, winning the last 9 bouts in row. "I think my body was moving well. I've been working on that for a week.." he said. "He was heavy. When he gets that left in, there is nothing you can do," said Daieishou who beat him twice by denying Kisenosato his deadly left grip. There is still a month till the basho and the jungyo runs until August 26th. "We've just started. I'll be taking it a day at a time.I think i'll be doing training bouts.." summed Kisenosato.

Kisenosato trained mostly against the same guys as yesterday with exactly the same overall record(12-2) in Saitama today. 10-1 against Daieishou and 2-1 against Sadanoumi. No Shoudai today. "I think I did  a bit better than yesterday. My body seems to be doing fine.," he said.  "He's strong. I did my best to deny him that left hold," added Daieishou.  Even when he did deny Kisenosato his hold, Kisenosato managed to overcome that and throw him down. "The Yokozuna seemed to have composure.." he added.

Composure:

Instead of Sadanoumi, Kise should rather pick on Chiyomaru who has the same Makuuchi record as Daieisho (101-124) which is the worst of all current Maegashira*.

(*not counting Kotoeko and Meisei)

Edit: by the way, when you take away the aforementioned two, there's a neat 20-20 split between Makuuchi rikishi with a positive and a negative W-L-balance.

The jungyo was in Saitama, Tokorozawa city, Hokutofuji's home town. Kakuryuu took it upon himself to lend his chest to Hokutofuji, giving him eight minutes of tender loving care from hell, leaving him breathless at the end, as the crowd erupted with cries of "Hokutofuji gambare!!" and even "Thank you, Kakuryuu!". "It was intense. The dirt was in my nose and mouth and I couldn't stop sneezing..I am happy to have been able to borrow the Yokozuna's chest. It helps with building up stamina. Butsugari geiko is difficult but efficient, I think," said Hokutofuji. "Whenever there's a local boy, there's nothing like doing butsugari with him ta the end of the training session to excite the fans. I want the fans to be happy," added Kakuryuu. His fellow college guys  Asanoyama, Yutakayama and Mitakeumi had good bashos in Nagoya and are a great stimulus to him. "I've got to ride this wave and gambarize and pull everyone after me. College graduates have a short career span. It's a question of how high you can climb in  that short period and how strong you can become, " summed Hokutofuji.

Gezundheit.

As Kisenosato was training with Sadanoumi, he attacked swiftly, got his left hand grip, and won. "That's the way you do it!" shouted Kasugano Jungyo boss.  Then, going in too high, Kisenosato was oshidashi'd by Daieishou. "That is NOT good!!" shouted Hakuhou very loudly, as he was doing shiko dohyo-side. Unusually loud utterance, says the reporter.
