Czech new face of Sumo wrestler Takanoyama (Pavel Bojar) stretch his winning streak to six in lower division and keep top position for the championship in the division... as of yesterday.
He spent almost ten years to climb up to the position, but if he wins the tournament, he will be promoted to upper division, which include Yokozuna and other high rank sumo wrestlers, from the next tournament. I do hope that he will bring a breath of fresh air into sluggish sumo world.

wow he's comparatively small, he must have quite some skill to wrestle at that level.

murakumo, there are many foreign wrestlers in professional sumo. Long-time yokozuna, Asashouryuu is Mongolian.
