Sumo, day 5

Alas, poor Harumafuji is almost certainly out of the running after today’s loss to Aran. To Aran, of all people (no offence to all the fine Aran fans out there). It was a funny match to watch, the way Harumafuji just dove out of the ring like a ballistic missile due to a fine sidestep by Aran. Textbook classic, well done Aran.

That leaves those in the running for championship at four: Kotomitsuki, Kotooshu, Hakuho and Asashoryu. Kotooshu and Hakuho are looking pretty strong, especially Hakuho. Hmm, well, we’ll see how things turn out.
