As Herouth noted on Twitter, Takayasu will be kyujo from the upcoming Aki Jungyo. Hopefully this was a reassessment of his injury and not a training setback.
Takayasu will be absent from the Aki Jungyo. He participated in the Meiji Grand Shrine Tournament and said he wanted to be in the Jungyo, but something must have changed.https://t.co/Tn1hG5Aw5j— ヘルット (@SumoFollower) October 3, 2019
To update our earlier report about Takakeisho’s kyujo, Herouth also tweeted news that the re-Ozeki will participate in the latter half of Jungyo, starting with the Hamamatsu event on October 16.
Takakeisho intends to join the Jungyo in time for the Hamamatsu event on Oct. 16th. "Showing one's face to the public is also a part of a rikishi's job".https://t.co/LOTbwv27l4— ヘルット (@SumoFollower) October 3, 2019
