In sumo wrestling, the yokozuna deliberation committee's training review was held in Tokyo for the first time in three years, and yokozuna Terunofuji, who has been suspended for four consecutive places due to injury, took the 3th sumo tournament and showed a good recovery for the summer, winning eight matches centered on a strong four-way sumo match.
The yokozuna deliberation committee's rehearsal review was held before the main venue at the Kokugikan, but due to the influence of the new coronavirus, it was canceled after it was held before the first place in Reiwa 2.
On the 4th, for the first time in about three years, a sumo training session was held behind closed doors to the general public at the Kokugikan in Tokyo, where the sumo wrestlers showed how they were preparing for the summer venue in front of the Japan Sumo Association President Yakaku and members of the Yokozuna Deliberation Committee.
Of these, Yokozuna Terunofuji, who has been absent for four consecutive places due to injuries to both knees, took the No. 4 sumo match against the likes of Sekiwaki Kirimayama and Daieisho, who will be promoted to Ozeki in the summer.
Terunofuji stepped sharply from the stands, took a turn, teamed up in fours, and leaned in at once to win 10-8 in a powerful sumo match, showing a good recovery.
In addition, Kirimayama worked tirelessly on his training, taking the 12th position, the most among sekitori, and showed a variety of approaches, such as putting pressure on his opponent with thrusts in addition to his specialty of four-way sumo.
In addition, Kikagekatsu, who was suspended due to a left knee injury the other day and entered the summer with a corner ban that will fall from Ozeki if he loses, took the No. 11 sumo wrestling and showed his strength with his strong push.
The sumo summer tournament will open on the 14th of this month at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo.
