Harumafuji: 70th Yokozuna!

http://www.sanspo.com/sports/photos/20120928/sum12092805020000-p3.html

But why oh why is he adopting the Shiranui-gata Dohyo-iri style?!! I know, just following in his shisho's footsteps.  The hell with that -- Unryu-gata all the way!

Daaaaaaaaayum.


I don't know what I find more impressive, what happened during the match itself or the fact that there were that many western people watching a sumo event. :P

Back when I was younger and a little more stupid, I might have looked at this and said "challenge accepted".

Now I just know better. :)

Chiyonofuji dead
« Reply #130 on: August 01, 2016, 12:57:20 AM »


The Wolf passes on: ex-yokozuna Chiyonofuji dead at 61.

This one is brutal. I saw Chiyo go on an extended run of yusho in his thirties that seemed to me unbelievable. A combination of power and grace and amazing technique in a sport dominated by massive, immobile forces.


Cancer is a bitch. It can bring down Everest. And a Fujisan.
