Ex-Saigo dead at age 43

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is really shocking  - ex-Saigo was posting lively excellent sumo videos till 2 days ago - and now the news that he passed away yesterday: he collapsed in his office in the morning and died at the nearest hospital the ambulance brought him to. The accurate cause of death is still under investigation, a heart attack from arrhythmia is seen as the reason.

The tsuya is on the 14th, the funeral service on the 15th, chief mourner is his widow.

Ex-Saigo is busy doing PR for the Saitama jungyo, he is a promoter, and for that he has started a Saigo 彩豪ちゃんねるsumo channel on YouTube

About 300 were at the wake yesterday, and also many at the funeral service of Saigo today. To them a sumo jinku expressing the sumo life of Saigo was distributed.

The shisho, ex-Nakamura (Fujizakura) gave the memorial address - the widow with the posthumous Buddhist name

Saigo had just started his 100 dohyo project, to provide dohyo to primary schools and sumo clubs all over the country, the first was installed this February in Saitama city. The members of his company want to continue with that work.
