Weigh-in results

Recommended Posts

The rikishi had their seasonal weigh-in in Tokyo yesterday. Asashouryuu put on 3 kilos and is now 146, his most ever. Tallest in Makuuchi is Kotooushuu, who shrunk by 1 centimeter and is now 2.03 meters (6ft.6).. "Yeah, right- if you do a lot of keiko, you shrink", he ad-libbed. Shortest- Takekaze and Toyonoshima at 1.71 (5 ft 6). Heaviest- Miyabiyama at 182 kilos (401 lbs). Lightest- Ama at 113 kilos (249 lbs).

Should be around 135-138 kilos, I guess.

Hmmm, he's officially listed at 143 or thereabout, I just thought maybe he gained some. I mean, it's pretty obvious that with his build he is not that stable when he takes charges from bigger men, which he compensates with extraordinary upper body strength and quickness of foot. I just think that there is an optimal point in his conditioning where he will be maximally stable without giving up any of that quickness, and he doesn't seem to have reached that yet. Ah well, we'll see during basho I guess.

FWIW, the updated weight information should appear on the Kyokai site closer to the basho, usually a few days before it starts.
