The Wall:

If a sumotori gets his first makekoshi (MK = losing record) in that respective division, it's called "hitting the wall" (KK = winning record, means missing the wall, which is a good thing). This basho we have Nishikifuji and newly promoted Mitpryu and Hiradoumi in makuuchi. Mitoryu looked like a rising star, when he first entered juryo for Hatsu 2018, but then he was stuck there for 27 basho. At least he didn't drop back to Makushita. In Juryo we have Oshoma, Chiyosakae, Gonoyama and the noobs Kinbozan and Tochimusashi. Oshoma was forced to withdraw covid related last basho, so he'll get another 1st try.


An Ozeki winning less then 8 bouts is set on the kadoban status. If he doesn't score 8 wins the following basho, he is demoted to Sekiwake. Mitakeumi was kadoban last basho, but was forced to withdraw covid related. Because it was a forced drop-out, he remained Ozeki, but is still on kadoban status.

Asanoyama had to drop out of Natsu 2021, because he violated covid rules and subsequently got caught lying. An additional 6 basho suspension had him drop from Ozeki to Sandanme 22w. After a 7-0 from there, he's back to Makushita 15e. With another 7-0 yusho, he'll be back to Juryo.

Guess the colour of the giant macaron:

One of the prizes for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real, normal sized macarons from one of the best Pâtisseries in Paris). The colour varies and it has become a popular game to guess it.
