Ex-Ozeki Asashio has passed away

Recommended Posts

Very sad news to hear. I remember watching him as a kid. I remember the epic playoff bout that he and Kotokaze had and then the next basho he secured promotion to ozeki (a Chiyonofuji zensho IIRC). He may not have very frequently been in the running for the yusho but he went a long time without posting a losing record.

I had no time to post memorial pics so far and don't think there will be any - each day more new events happen that take all the time I have for this

Takamiyama

Makes me wonder: what's his official name right now? Back to Jesse Kuhaulua?
