Nagoya Day 12: Hakuho ties all-time wins record

Details

Hakuho matched the all-time record held by former ozeki Kaio in the day's penultimate bout at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium, knocking sekiwake Tamawashi (6-6) back with some vicious blows to the face before finishing him off with a routine shove at the ring's edge.

"It's strange, but I feel happy to be tied. I can't adequately express how I feel in words. Over the past year, I've suffered from injuries and struggles and I think I have achieved this tremendous record because of that."

Watching the action from ringside as a judge, sat the man whose record he tied, sumo elder Asakayama said he was moved by Hakuho's effort. "This is only a point along the road for him," Asakakayama said. "Watching from below, he impressed upon you his strength and spirit."

The result keeps Hakuho (11-1), sumo's most successful wrestler with 38 championship titles, one win clear of No. 8 maegashira Aoiyama with three days of the 15-day meet remaining. Hakuho can claim sole ownership of the all-time record with a victory against new ozeki Takayasu on Friday. "Tomorrow, I want to be the sole owner of the record," Hakuho said.

Aoiyama got back to winning ways to keep himself in the thick of the title race, the Bulgarian-born grappler tearing down 13th-ranked Hokutofuji (6-6) after a flurry of head charges to move to 10-2.

But sixth-ranked Onosho dropped out of a tie for second when he was slapped down to a third defeat by 10th-ranked Chiyotairyu (8-4).

Mongolian yokozuna Harumafuji is at 9-3 after he quickly marched out sekiwake Mitakeumi (8-4) in the day's last bout.

Takayasu fell three wins off the pace when he was blasted out of the dohyo by fifth-ranked Tochiozan (9-3).
