Hakuho’s 31st Yusho


He won. Ichinojo fell on Saturday, Kakuryu on Sunday.

Despite the historic win, the story of the tournament continues to be Ichinojo’s success. He took home two special prizes, the Outstanding Performance and Fighting Spirit. Aminishiki claimed the Technique prize. Aoiyama and Ikioi had impressive performances. Hopefully both will find themselves among the higher ranks next tournament.

Whatever the matchups, I sincerely hope to see Osunaarashi’s aggressive brand of sumo battle Ichinojo’s grappling.
