Tochinoshin on top

January 29, 2018

It’s hard not to like Tochinoshin. The Maegashira #3 sumo wrestler from Georgia often played the role of spoiler to aspiring champions in past tournaments. Moreover, in contrast with some other foreign wrestlers, Tochinoshin has worked doggedly to integrate into Japanese culture, gaining him strong domestic support and respect.

What a delight to see rank-and-filer Tochinoshin win the 2018 hatsu basho championship.
