FIRST EUROPEAN OZEKI WAS BORN
Kotooshu is under oyakata coach Sadogatake, whose name was succeeded from predecessor, Norio Kamatani, to former Kotonowaka very last Saturday, 26 Nov. The Bulgarian was 12, 13 and 11 wins in the last three tournaments' results which was enough to make the East Sekiwake promotion agree unanimously with the Banzuke Organization Conference and Board of Directors in the Kyokai. Especially he had taken 2 wins from Yokozuna Asashoryu last three meetings, who was defeated only 6 times this season !
Finally, new hero was here. That is what I had waited for long time in Sumo Kyokai. I expect more a lot of heroes to appear. By the way, he is whether to change his name. There must be more suitable name for him, right ?
