Hakuho Wins Osaka Basho


Hakuho won the Osaka Basho with a flawless record 15-0. With fellow countryman Asashouryu retired Hakuho is pretty much the top dog in the pack, but look out for Estonian Baruto who has had a very impressive string of Basho's as of late. Going 14-1 in this Spring Basho, Baruto has pretty much assured his promotion to Ozeki. The official announcement is due Wednesday. Baruto also was awarded the best technique prize, as well as the fighting spirit award. Congrats to both Sumo as they have demonstrated great wrestling over the past two weeks!

Cheers
Jake
