J13  – Les cartes sont rebattues : 4 lutteurs restent en lice pour le titre

Les rebondissements succèdent aux coups de théâtre durant ce Aki Basho ! Alors que le sekiwake Takakeishô avait pris la tête du classement hier, il n’a pas réussi à la conserver aujourd’hui et à deux jours de combat de la fin du tournoi, ils sont encore quatre à briguer la coupe.

Takakeisho affrontait l’ôzeki Goeidô pour le dernier combat de la journée. L’ôzeki, probablement libéré depuis qu’il a atteint le kachi-koshi, a complètement étouffé le sekiwake, l’empêchant d’exercer quelque pression que ce soit, et l’a forcé à se coucher à terre, sans que Takakeisho n’ait pu esquisser un quelconque geste.

Juste avant ce combat, le premier des poursuivant, l’autre sekiwake Mitakeumi, luttait contre le maegashira 6 Myogiryû. Très concentré comme d’habitude, Mitakeumi a pu mettre en place une poussée énorme qui a catapulté Myogiryû jusqu’à l’extérieur.

Le deuxième poursuivant, Okinoumi (M8) affrontait le maegashira 13 Kagayaki. Après un tachi-ai assez équilibré, Okinoumi a trouvé le moyen d’effacer son adversaire par le côté, le basculant au sol.

Les derniers poursuivants, le M14 Tsurugisho et le M8 Takarafuji se départageaient l’un contre l’autre, et à ce jeu, c’est Tsurugisho qui a tiré son épingle du jeu.

Ainsi, c’est ces 4 lutteurs qui sont maintenant sur la même ligne pour atteindre le but.

Derrière, il faut noter les efforts particuliers de l’ôzeki Tochinoshin, toujours à la recherche de sa 8ème victoire synonyme de conservation de grade, qui a battu le M5 Ryuden après un corps à corps très difficile. Il doit continuer sur sa lancée et gagner les deux derniers matches…

Pour finir, les deux komusubi Endo et Abi ont atteint tous les deux le kachi-koshi, ce qui leur permettra de garder leur rang au prochain banzuke et de rester ainsi san’yaku.

Title chase now wide open

Title chase now wide open

The race for the Emperor’s Cup at the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament was thrown wide open again when Takakeisho lost to ozeki Goeido on Friday and fell into a four-way tie for the lead with two days remaining. A day after securing promotion back to the sport’s second-highest rank and a one-win lead, Takakeisho (10-3) suffered a quick loss at the hands of Goeido (9-4), who went into the match with a 7-3 career advantage over the sekiwake.In the final bout of Day 13 at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan, Goeido absorbed Takakeisho’s intial hit and launched himself over the top of the 175-cm sekiwake, grabbing him by the belt while pushing his head down. Takakeisho is now tied with fellow sekiwake Mitakeumi and a pair of maegashira wrestlers, No. 8 Okinoumi and makuuchi newcomer, No. 14 Tsurugisho.

Only three of the five wrestlers who started the day one win behind Takakeisho prevailed on Day 13. Goeido, No. 2 maegashira Asanoyama, No. 8 Takarafuji, No. 10 Meisei and No. 16 Yutakayama are all two wins back at 9-4 hoping for a chance.

Mitakeumi evened his career record with No. 6 Myogiryu (6-5-2) in a close contest that brought the judges onto the dohyo for deliberation.The sekiwake delivered a flying push to send Myogiryu over the straw as he crashed to the clay, but the judges ruled the maegashira’s foot made contact before Mitakeumi fell.

Tsurugisho continued his stunning debut by taking Takarafuji out of title contention, clinching double-digit wins in his first top-division tournament and keeping himself in the race for the Emperor’s Cup. The 28-year-old rookie drove Takarafuji to the edge after a big hit, but after being taken back himself, changed tactics at the edge and swung the veteran down with an underarm throw.

First-half leader No. 8 Okinoumi also picked up his 10th win by defeating No. 13 Kagayaki (5-8). Okinoumi, who had commanded the lead until taking his first loss on Monday, slapped his opponent down after failing to make headway in a shoving match.

Meisei fell down the leaderboard after suffering his fourth loss in a bout against No. 12 Shohozan (8-6), who secured a winning record. After ramming each other around, Shohozan delivered a powerful slap that threw Meisei off balance and caused him to tumble.

In other bouts, Endo earned his first winning record in the sanyaku ranks, the three below yokozuna, with a hard-fought victory over No. 7 Kotoshogiku (5-8). The komusubi was able to keep both feet on the ground by clinging to Kotoshogiku’s belt as the former ozeki tried desperately to force him out. Endo, however, maneuvered his way into an overarm throw that ended the bout in his favor. The laconic fan-favorite Endo said his performance here “isn’t that great but I’m hanging in there” with two days to go.

Komusubi Abi (8-5) also secured a winning record, using his big reach to keep No. 6 Shimanoumi (4-9) at arm’s reach and launch him backwards over the straw.

Tochinoshin (6-7) took out No. 5 Ryuden (6-7) and got a much-needed win in his bid to keep his ozeki rank. The Georgian locked onto the maegashira’s belt and muscled him out in a return to form following a pair of questionable calls earlier in the meet. Tochinoshin must win his remaining matches here in order to avoid demotion to sekiwake.
