Thanks to the generosity of some folks who were in the Kokugikan, we now have video of Wakaichiro’s day 12 win over Jonidan 8 Ako. With this win, Wakaichiro is now kachi-koshi, and will likely be re-joining Sandanme for Nagoya. Interesting to watch the difference between this year and last year during Natsu. Wakaichiro’s sumo has shown dramatic improvement. He’s faster, stronger, more aggressive.
Wakaichiro has one match remaining, that will likely come Saturday morning. We will, as always, bring you full coverage.
