The Tsuna is the big white rope worn by a yokozuna. It weighs 20 lbs. Harumafuji was fitted for a new one.
In other news, a decision about Endo is due in the next few days. They said that they’ll make a decision as to whether he’ll fight one week before the tournament starts. I hope he sits this one out to give himself a more full recovery. If he has to sit out two more, go down to makushita, do it. Tochinoshin proves you can come back and pick up a few yusho while you’re at it. Same with Aminishiki and Chiyoootori.
Lastly, Ichinojo weighs 207 kilos. Dude is huge.
