Top 10 Sumo Records Nagoya 2019 Edition

Recommended Posts

And HE'S back ladies and gentlemen! After a seven basho drought and oft numerous speculations about his retirement, yokozuna Kakuryu showed up strong in an epic final battle of the basho against his fellow yokozuna and countryman, the GOAT Hakuho! Couple that with an epic bout between Endo and Hokutofuji for the last sanyaku spot, the decimation of the ozeki to injuries, Tomokaze and Terutsuyoshi keeping the yusho race interesting, and the people's new hero EnHo getting that technique award he swore to chase. The younger generation continues to try and find its place against the old guard, whose numbers dwindled even more after the retirement of the man, the myth, the legend, the LAST man to defeat Takanohana, the wily Aminishiki. He is going to be sorely missed, but one thing for sure is that he has cemented himself in the halls of many of the records that continue to be recorded here, and may be in quite a few of those for many, many years. One has to ask, will we be seeing the next great sumo wrestler in the current crop, somewhere behind the curtain, or someone who hasn't even joined yet? And now on to the Nagoya 2019 edition of Top 10 Sumo Records!

10. Kaio (28 years - 9/2000)

If Tochinoshin was 30y 7m at his Ozeki promotion, wouldn’t he fall within the top 10 for oldest first Makuuchi yusho? He won in January 2018 and got promoted after May 2018, debuting in July. Counting backwards from then, he surely was older than Mitoizumi and Asashio at 29y 11m.

Sanyaku, not Sekiwake. Goeido still has the Sekiwake record of 14 consecutive basho. He also remains the only man in the top 10 for consecutive sanyaku appearances to have done his streak entirely at Sekiwake. Everyone else, like Mitakeumi, moved back and forth between Komusubi and Sekiwake.

Longest losing streak from pro debut -- Hattorizakura

According to his DB, he has 23 consecutive loses from debut (including a fusen loss). After winning his first shiroboshi, he lost 89 matches in a row.

Is there anyone loses more than 23 consecutively from debut?

A single win by fusen ruined the losing streak for this guy:

http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=6606

That was the only ‘win’ of his career.

And then there’s this guy, who lost 25 in a row, plus three kyujo bouts.

OK, I stand corrected. So SATO Takahiro has a bigger losing streak since pro debut, thanks to Hattorizakura's surprise win on Day 6 of Natsu 2016. But I'm sure he holds the record for persistence. Imagine. Living a penniless life and making a career out of being constantly defeated,
