Congrats to Hakuho for a job perfectly well done. Nice to see him back on top again. I wish him good luck for his wish to accomplish 40 championships.

38 tournaments is more than 6 full years worth, plus two.

Compared with other sports, it's an amazing record. (Roger Federer for example at 35 years has 18 grand slams - 4 years worth, plus two.)

@Yubaru Why would they mention Kisenosato? The story was about Hakuho.

Kisenosato pulled out a few days earlier when the same news service did a story on his wihdrawal.

you dont understand basic news reporting. AP is not a propaganda machine like Kyodo or NHK.
