J13 – 43ème yushô pour Hakuhô

 

Au terme de cette 14ème journée, le yokozuna Hakuhô s’est approprié de manière définitive la coupe de l’Empereur du Kyushu Bashô.

Son avenir a d’abord dépendu de ses adversaires qui auraient éventuellement pu toujours contester sa position.

Le premier d’entre eux, le komusubi Asanoyama, devait gagner mais aussi espérer un faux pas du yokozuna pour rester dans la course. Il combattait aujourd’hui le maegashira 7 Ryuden (6-7), et a procédé de manière conventionnelle en maitrisant son adversaire. Malgré une très bonne résistance de Ryuden, c’est bien Asanoyama qui a repoussé son opposant à l’extérieur et atteint sa dixième victoire.

Le deuxième prétendant, le maegashira 10 Shodai affrontait le M2 Myogiryu (6-7). Ce dernier a réussi à le repousser au tachi-ai et l’a accompagné ensuite à l’extérieur, s’octroyant ainsi la victoire. Shodai reste à 9 victoires.

Débarrassé de ses poursuivants dans l’immédiat, le yokozuna Hakuhô pouvait donc aborder son dernier combat sereinement. C’est ce qu’il a fait contre Mitakeumi (6-7) qui pourtant devait gagner pour avoir une chance de ne pas redescendre dans le prochain classement. Mais avec une prise au mawashi suivi d’un croc-en-jambe intérieur, le yokozuna n’a laissé aucune chance à son adversaire et l’a envoyé au sol.

Hakuhô remporte donc dès aujourd’hui son 43ème titre, et il a déclaré :

« Je me suis préparé aussi bien que j’ai pu. C’est long depuis le mois de mars, depuis que j’ai été blessé. Après cela, j’ai aussi eu un problème de doigts. Pendant tout ce temps, j’ai réfléchi, et j’ai réfléchi, mais à la fin, j’ai arrêté de penser et j’ai agi. »

Défaite du dernier ôzeki Takakeishô contre le komusubi Abi, qui atteint le kachi-koshi (8 victoires). Le komusubi Endo remporte une belle victoire contre Tamawashi (M4), mais il devra encore gagner demain pour conserver son grade. Enfin le poids mouche Enho reste encore capable d’atteindre le kachi-koshi demain avec une victoire contre le M14 Terustuyoshi.

Hakuho seals 43rd career title

Hakuho seals 43rd career title

FUKUOKA – Yokozuna Hakuho won a record-extending 43rd championship and his first as a naturalized Japanese citizen on Saturday, taking out the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament with a day to spare.

The 34-year-old from Mongolia, who acquired Japanese citizenship in September and withdrew from that month’s tourney with a broken finger, claimed his first championship since going 15-0 in March.

Grabbing a left-handed belt hold on the charge, Hakuho stopped sekiwake Mitakeumi in his tracks and tipped him over backward in a matter of seconds. Mitakeumi, the September champion, had come to Kyushu with an outside shot of promotion to ozeki, but fell to his eighth loss.

“I prepared as well as I could. It’s been a long time since March, when I was hurt. After that I had the finger issue,” said Hakuho, who suffered his only loss on Day 2. “During that time I thought, and I thought, but in the end I stopped thinking and just executed.” Having been hurt in the March tourney, Hakuho sat out the May tournament and missed most of the Autumn Basho in September.

Hakuho entered the day needing either to win or for both No. 10 maegashira Shodai and komusubi Asanoyama to lose. Shodai lost his match to make it a two-wrestler race. Asanoyama, however, refused to go easily into that good night, battling back to earn his 11th win. Shodai lost a battle of former sekiwake wrestlers to suffer his fourth defeat. The No. 10 tried to rock No. 2 Myogiryu (7-7) back with a right forearm to the chest but lacked the power to make it work. Myogiryu absorbed the blow, wrapped both arms around Shodai’s torso and forced him out.

Asanoyama surrendered a belt hold as he drove No. 5 Ryuden (6-8) back to the straw only for his opponent to spin him around. But in the process, Asanoyama also got a secure hold on his opponent’s belt and was able to force him across the ring and out.

No. 1 Daieisho earned his eighth win, driving No. 6 Onosho (7-7) out of the ring with a powerful shove to the throat.

Komusubi Endo improved to 7-7, forcing No. 4 Tamawashi out to his seventh defeat.

In the day’s penultimate bout, ozeki Takakeisho (9-5) failed to earn his 10th win as he paid the price for an unimaginative charge against komusubi Abi (8-6). Abi forced the ozeki upward, spun him around and forced him out from behind.

No. 11 Ishiura (8-6) earned a winning record with a clever victory over Sadanoumi (7-7), who drove the 110-kg dynamo back to the straw but couldn’t force him out. Although Ishiura twice failed to twist Sadanoumi down, the effort compromised the No. 8’s balance and he was easily thrusted down.

No. 11 Chiyotairyu (8-6) clinched a winning record by shoving out No. 7 Kotoeko (4-10).

Popular No. 6 Enho stayed alive in his hunt for a winning record. The 168-cm, 98-kg wrestler used his quickness and small stature to get under No. 14 Terutsuyoshi’s (8-6) arms on the opening charge. He seized the back of his opponent’s belt with his left hand and flung him to the sandy surface and a sixth loss.
