Tochinoshin wins at 14-1 Victory! Peace!

First rank and filer to win a basho since Kyokutenho in May of 2012.

Here's the trophy presentation and interview video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9h6cfLv0OM

I guess I'm basically an optimist because even though things are kind of a mess at the top of the banzuke, the yokozuna's can't stay healthy and the ozeki's aren't exactly domineering, several good young rikishi coming up thru the ranks.

Two new rikishi this basho, Abi and Ryuden both ended up with double digit winning records. Will be interesting to see how they do next basho when they get some tougher opponents. Ishiura came back to go 9-6, Mitakeumi only went 8-7, but he did beat Kakuryu. Hopefully Onosho can come back from his injury next basho.

Kakuyru is undefeated but he's dodged a couple bullets, could just as easily be 6-2.

Hakuho and Kisenosato both sitting this one out still with injuries.

No women allowed in the ring, even if someone might be dying.

Women told not to enter 'sacred' sumo ring

Controversy over gender discrimination in sumo tradition flared again this week when a referee urged two women to stay out of the ring as they tried to assist an official who was unconscious.

The sumo world has long maintained that the ring is a sacred place and that women cannot enter, in a tradition often criticized as discrimination.

Maizuru Mayor Ryozo Tatami, 66, was delivering a speech in the ring, in Maizuru, Kyoto Prefecture, on Wednesday when he collapsed due to a subarachnoid hemorrhage. He was later rushed to a hospital and underwent surgery. His condition is stable and not life-threatening, one of his secretaries told The Japan Times on Thursday morning.

The referee’s announcement, aired through loud speakers at the gymnasium, rekindled public criticism and prompted Japan Sumo Association Chairman Hakkaku to later issue a statement of apology.

“The referee was upset and made the announcement, but it was an inappropriate response because the situation could have been life-threatening,” Hakkaku said in the statement. “We extend a deep apology.”

He also said the association “deeply thanks the women for giving first-aid treatment.”

Video of the event was repeatedly aired on TV shows Thursday morning, showing several people rushing to help the mayor including at least two women.

Several commentators on different channels argued that the referee should not have urged the women to leave the ring. Numerous people also criticized the sumo tradition on social media outlets.

This basho may end up being the "Last Man Standing" basho.

No Yokozuna, Kisenosato was a no show from day 1, this makes eight tournaments in a row he hasn't participated in. Hakuho withdrew on day four with a knee injury, and Kakuryu on day six with an elbow injury.

Then on day seven, new ozeki Tochinoshin withdrew with a toe injury.

Here's the leaderboard after day 8:

S1w Mitakeumi 8 - 0

M6e Endo 7 - 1

M13w Asanoyama 7 - 1

O1w Takayasu 6 - 2

M6w Chiyotairyu 6 - 2

M13e Tochiozan 6 - 2

Kaio appeared on the Dotchi no Ryori special that aired several years after that show ended. Looked like he had lost weight, not a lot but some.

The two yokozuna from Hawaii who were Kaio's contemporaries--Akebono and Musashimaru--have had serious health problems in recent years. Musashimaru received a kidney transplant from his wife; he is supposedly improving to the point where he is back to running his stable. Akebono has had serious heart issues; at one point he was put in a medically induced coma. He has a long road to recovery.

Over halfway at the Fall basho:

Y1e Kakuryu 8 - 0

Y1w Hakuho 8 - 0

O1e Goeido 7 - 1

O1w Takayasu 7 - 1

M9e Hokutofuji 7 - 1

M13e Ryuden 7 - 1

Y2e Kisenosato 6 - 2

S1e Mitakeumi 6 - 2

M5w Asanoyama 6 - 2

M13w Takanoiwa 6 - 2

M15w Yoshikaze 6 - 2

Kakuryu has looked good, but Hakuho has dodged a couple bullets, could just as easily be 6-2. Kisenosato started well at 5-0 but has lost two of his last three. Glad to see my man Yoshikaze (how can you not like a guy that leads with his forehead?) doing well after a terrible last basho.

1001!!!

Career wins for Hakuho, his 14th basho where he goes undefeated, also a record, 807* wins just as Yokozuna. Bow

Y1w Hakuho 15 - 0

O1e Goeido 12 - 3

O1w Takayasu 11 - 4

M15w Yoshikaze 11 - 4

Y1e Kakuryu 10 - 5

Y2e Kisenosato 10 - 5

M12w Nishikigi 10 - 5

M13e Ryuden 10 - 5

M13w Takanoiwa 10 - 5

* I tried to find an all time winners list, could only find the top 10. At 10th is Terao with 860 so I'm guessing if you only counted Hakuho's Yokozuna wins he would still be somewhere in the top 15.
