98th National Student Championships

Recommended Posts

The Student Championships are planned for November 7th and 8th - in the kokugikan. This has to be changed, on the 8th the November basho starts in the kokugikan. The sumo federation got the message from the NSK on the 14th - they had not been contacted before. A change of schedule is considered now. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/202007140000766.html

The student championships are to be held at the Saitama pref. Budokan.

The All Japan championships are scheduled unchanged for Dec. 6th in the kokugikan, with 120 athletes expected. The usual preliminaries won't take place, it will be tournament mode from the start.

Both events may get canceled due to Corona.

After the newcomer tournament postponed and the national Usa, Kanazawa, Towada and other select tournaments canceled, the east and west Japan weight categories student championships on the 13th will be the first major university tournaments this year to take place.

They have 8 weight categories, the west Japan event is in Sakai http://mainichi.jp/articles/20200905/ddn/013/040/013000c, the east Japan event at the Yasukuni shrine.

The national weight categories student championships are on the 27th this month, also in Sakai http://mainichi.jp/articles/20200905/ddm/035/050/066000c, where also the West Japan student championships will take place on Oct. 4th, the east Japan event like the national championships at the Saitama budokan. http://www.nihonsumo-renmei.jp/yotei/index.html
