If you want to watch the GOAT, plan to do it soon. In a revealing interview, Hakuho announced his intention to retire this year.
He didn’t get more specific about when he would retire but there had been a lot of speculation that his ultimate goal was to be active for this year’s Olympics, where he will be a torch-bearer. Herouth found the tweet below, I stepped back to the original video before the workout video. Herouth’s thread below.
Hakuho gives us a rare peek into his weight training routine. He mentions he dyes his supporters to make them soon-to-be, per regulation. Dyes with… black tea.— ヘルット (@SumoFollower) January 6, 2020
Then he blurts out: "I might as well let you see everything. It's going to end this year. I'll retire this year."
The first video from the original tweet gave some more inside into his motivations, namely to spend more time with his family and to raise a new crop of wrestlers. This past New Year, for example, he spent in Australia with his family…on his new passport as a Japanese national. So for those Tachiai readers in Oz (esp. Sydney) you may have seen him around town.
