Mongolian sumo champions battle at Nagoya tournament

Mongolia’s two grand champion sumo wrestlers battled each other yesterday at
the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament in Japan. 

The younger Mongolian, Hakuho, defeated
Asasekiryu to remain undefeated and tied for the tournament lead. During the match, Hakuho drove Asasekiryu
out of the ring with a powerful shoving move. The win brought the 22-year-old’s
tournament record to 5 wins and 0 losses. Asasekiryu currently has two wins and
three losses at the Nagoya
tournament.

Hakuho became a grand champion in May,
becoming only the fourth non-Japanese to attain Sumo wrestling’s highest rank.
Hakuho received the promotion after winning both the spring and summer
tournaments in 2007.

He is moving quickly to establish his
dominance with his strong showing at the Nagoya
tournament.
