Recommended Posts

Top 10 watch:

Hakuho has now extended the all time yusho count to 41, while also extending the all time zensho yusho count to 14. The yusho also gives Miyagino beya 43 yusho, pushing it to sole 4th place for most yusho among heyas.

Goeido was the sole jun-yusho for Aki 2018, giving him his 7th jun-yusho. He needs five more to get into the top 10.

Hakuho now extends the all time wins record to 1095. Aminishiki is the next highest among active rikishi at 882. Ahead of him on the all time list is Wakanosato in 7th place at 912. Kisenosato having completed his first basho since his yokozuna debut is now at 800 wins, still a ways to go to get to 10th place Terao at 860.

Hakuho extends the makuuchi wins record to 1001. Kisenosato finished the basho to get him to 714 wins, vaulting him ahead of former rival Harumafuji who had 712. Next up in 5th place is Taiho at 746.

Hakuho extends the yokozuna wins record to 807.

Aminishiki now has 1743 career matches, which puts him above Kaio. Next up in the list is 3rd place Terao at 1795.

Hakuho now has 1176 makuuchi matches, while Kotoshogiku has 1171 matches. In 10th place is Tosanoumi at 1183 matches.

Hakuho extends the most matches as yokozuna record to 913.

Hakuho and Kisenosato fought their 60th makuuchi match against each other, putting them in a tie at 4th place with Hakuho and Kotoshogiku. Kisenosato and Kakuryu also fought their 50th match this basho, which puts them at 2 behind 3 pairings in 9th place at 52.

Hakuho competed in his 86th basho in makuuchi. This has gotten him into the top 10 list for most basho in makuuchi, tying Takekaze. At 8th place is Wakanosato at 87 basho. Hakuho is also the only yokozuna to be in this list now.

Hakuho extends the yokozuna basho record to 67.

Aminishiki competed in his 112th basho as a sekitori. In front of him in 2nd place is Kyokutenho at 115. Takekaze also competed in his 96th basho as sekitori, ahead of him in 10th place is Tosanoumi at 97.

As of this post Hanakaze has extended the all time career basho record to 195. He now has 32 1/2 years as an active rikishi in the sport.

Mitakeumi has now completed 10 consecutive basho in the lower sanyaku ranks (komusubi and sekiwake combined), and will be ranked for an 11th consecutive basho in Kyushu. This will get him into the top 10 next basho, tying him with Daikirin, Sakahoko, Musashimaru, and Ama aka Harumafuji.

Wow, that's amazing although topping out at sd18 years ago dampens the record a bit.    At 48 years old, he can get seriously hurt.   What keeps him going?  A longer record?

He’s hoping to perform the Jonidan dohyo-iri at the Olympics.

Perhaps he enjoys the sumo lifestyle? 

He and Hattorizakura will get along fine.  They can even start their own communal cult revolving around sumo (or, is that called heya?).

Hanakaze manages an actual bona fide KK every second or third basho. Compared to Hattorizakura, he's yokozuna material.

Compared to Hattorizakura, so am I, so it's a pretty low bar.
