Wakaichiro (若一郎) Wins 5th Match


American Sumotori Improves to 3-2

Late word this Monday night that in Tuesday action at the Kokugikan, American sumotori Wakaichro was victorious over Jonidan rank 56 rikishi Asanoshima. This improves Wakaichiro’s record to 3-2, and puts him back in winning territory. One more will will secure a winning record, or kachi-koshi, for this tournament.

As always, we will bring you video of the match as soon as we can find any.

  1. Here’s hoping that he gets his KK and we get to see more of him. It must have been great to get to talk in English to a rikishi! :)

    • He’s also a really nice, down to earth guy. He’s got charisma and if his sumo advances him, he will make a great ambassador for sumo to a large and untapped US market.
