Look carefully at the first picture.  How often, I wonder, does Naruto (6'8") feel like he's sitting in a child's seat?

If the heya were in Chiba prefecture, the rikishi could do PR at Tokyo Disney as the Seven Non-Dwarfs (Mickey...).

Hakuho showed today at the tournament  that he will do more than just the dohyo-iri at the jungyo, and also Takayasu already competed.

8 sekitori are kyujo: Takakeisho, Ichinojo and Tomokaze in makuuchi.

Juryo: Chiyoshoma, Kyokushuho, Chiyonoumi, Seiro - and Takanofuji of course.

The rikishi tournament - and also bouts at the danpatsushiki the days before (he was shown at that for Kisenosato, so likely he did it already for Satoyama) - were apparently premature for Takaysu: he is kyujo for the jungyo. The medical certificate is not yet out.  http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201910030000443.html

Actually, his elbow was still wrapped up for the tournament, which was a worrying point for me.

At the rikishi 1day tournament, Takayasu had elbow pain: "I had recovered about 70%", but during the torikumi he got (his arm) caught in an ottsuke  and "The pain returned a bit"

"It's undecided if I'll join later. If the condition is unsatisfying, it may be a full kyujo. I'm at a stage at the moment where I can't do sumo, so I have to cure it solidly."

"I'm simply doing it steadily day by day without wasting time."

The responsible oyakata for the Otawara jungyo on the 9th, Shiranui on the 3rd was at a primary school near the venue and handed out tickets.

With the captain of the sumo club team at pref. primary and middle school championships - also the local middle school sumo team, that won the first yusho for Tochigi at the national middle school championships in August, got tickets

Today in Itoigawa, Niigata, Hakuhou called on Yutakayama for some butsuGarry Shandling. They went at it for seven minutes. "One more!!" called Hakuhou. Yutakayama politely declined. Oooooooooooooo... "It's the first time anyone denied me. I  spontaneously laughed.. " said Hakuhou. "It's not good for one to stop oneself. 'Thank you sir.' is what he should be saying, otherwise he will not become strong," he added. After the training session, they passed each other in the toilet. "Don't you wanna get stronger??, "asked Hakuhou. "I want to get stronger!!" answered Yutakayama (as if he had a choice..). "Doing butsugari with the Yokozuna is like, I'm doing the pushing but it feels like  I'm the one being attacked. There is no one like him in all of sumo!" summed Yutakayama.

Ounoshou- "I'm glad it's not me up there. I shall now look away so that our eyes don't meet by mistake.."
