Hawaiian wrestler Musiashimaru won this year's autumn tournament, defeating the Japanese top star Takanohana.

Isn't he cute, hehe (192cm, 237 kg)

Here's some info on Takanohana (at 184 cm he's definitely tall)

Although, MusashiMaru won. Takanohana still stole the show with his record of 12-3 after coming back from an injury related break.

Taka seems done. He failed to reappear at the final basho of the year. Soon it will be all gaijin at the top in Sumo. Asashoryu!!!! da man.

If Taka retires the sole remaining Yokozuna will be Mushimaru. He is (or was) American. Asashoryu is looking really good right now and might make the top rank in the next year or two. He is Mongolian. THe only other guy who looks like a candidate is Chiyotaikai, and he is a nihonjin.
