Wakaichiro Wins Day 9

Wakaichro nagoya Day 9

In a timely reversal of the trend, Texas sumotori Wakaichiro prevailed against Mienosato his day 9 match. Wakaichiro was more heavily bandaged than on any previous day, and its a bit of a concern that his right arm may have been injured in his endurance match on day 7. Wakaichiro had control of the match from the start, and quickly drove Mienosato to the east side and out.

With this win, Wakaichiro improves to 2-3 for Nagoya, with a kachi-koshi still possible. We will bring you video as soon as we can find it online.
