Day 4 Saitama

this jungyo has group moushi-ai keiko, groups of 3 or 4: 

 

This is causing rampant boredom in the stands, since it's the same opponents over and over again.. Most of the time the announcer isn't even announcing, which adds to the atmosphere of disinterest, says the reporter.

"The jungyo is boring.The crowd isn't into it. Bring back the children’s sumo!" complained Kakuryuu yesterday. Regarding the new "group of 4 rikishi moshiai"- " After they're done they leave so it's quite lonely out there.." he added.

Hakuhou out with a right knee injury and is back in Tokyo to see exactly what the problem is. "I am really sorry about this. It's a fracture. I will gambarize and rehabilitate the knee," he wrote on his Twitter account.

Ichinojou had 9 bouts today against the likes of Aoiyama and Chiyotairyuu and was 5-4. Yesterday he had 10 bouts and seems to be training vigorously using the new group system. "I think it works well. When everyone is crowding the training dohyo you can maybe get in 4 bouts. With only 4-5 guys there at a time you can do more bouts so that's good," he explained. He is now on a 4 basho kachikoshi run at Sekiwake. While his Sekiwake counterpart Mitakeumi had a yusho in Nagoya, he has only managed three consecutive 8-7 records. "I guess it's in the feeling.. I will be aiming for double digit wins and will gradually try to take the next step. That's all I need to do," he added.

Spoken like a Japanese.   Will see what kind of shape he comes back when he does.   He is getting on years so a prolonged injury like this can set him back, even lead to intai.  Will see.  Will see.

Kyoto today. Kisenosato calls out Mitakeumi king of training for some sanbangeiko- 11 bouts, 9-2. "I keep getting asked why I choose Mitakeumi to train with, but I can't really say.. It was good keiko. I sweated a good sweat (horses sweat, humans perspire, I know, I KNOW..). It's not good keiko unless both parties mutually exert power.." he said. Kisenosato has entered all days of the last  jungyo and the basho. Entering the second half of this jungyo, things are a bit different this time. ":The basho is actually sandwiched between the jungyos.. I'm able to reach this stage in good shape. I had some difficult times during the last basho . It's obvious that I've been doing my best till now,  but there is nothing obvious about the Aki jungyo.. I feel refreshed- I'm in good shape!!" he said. His  rise to Ozeki was decided in Kyushu 2011, his 12-3 in Kyushu 2016 started his Yokozuna run as well.  "Kyushu has always been been good to me. Last year though, I withdrew on day 10.. OK, other than that one.." he summed.
