Early Wednesday in Tokyo, Terunofuji and Isegahama oyakata (and the okamisan!) received the party from the Japan Sumo Association, brining the official announcement that Terunofuji had been promoted to Yokozuna. Terunofuji now becomes the 73rd Yokozuna, and the sumo world celebrates. Thanks to the magic of YouTube, you can see a video of it too!
As it was a live stream, the title card stays up for a while, then you have several minutes of Terunofuji standing around looking nervous. But the crew shows up, everyone gets into the zarei, and in a moment, it’s fish lifting time!
Congratulations to Yokozuna Terunofuji. I know of no parallel in the world of sports for what you achieved. May your reign at the top be long and happy.
