Aki Basho: Day 12 results, insight, and current standings

Tamawashi finally on the board. Atamifuji upended by Daieisho. Hoshoryu evens up his record following a win.

A wet rain came down as the last day of summer was ahead of the fans who trickled into the Koukgikan to soak of the last few days of sumo’s Aki Basho.

Tamawashi celebrated his first win today with a win over Chiyoshoma, who will more than likely be demoted to Division 2 Juryo following this tournament. “Well the whale is off of my back, no doubt,” says Tamawashi, “I’d rather it be a whale over a monkey because it was a big one!”

Atamifuji came in with a 2-win lead over the next closest competitors Takayasu and Takakeisho. However, he was upended by a hungrier Daieisho who achieved Kachi-Koshi with his win. Atamifuji’s lead is now down to a full bout with 3 days remaining and his next competitor is the Ozeki Takakeisho, who removed his kadoban status as of yesterday.

Hoshoryu, who was 3-6, going into today’s bout, finally evened things up, making things just a tad favorable for him to a full Ozeki status without kadoban thanks to his win over Gonoyama this afternoon.
