05-09-25 At Kiseido September Basho, Erestor finished at 14th place of 32 with a steady 2-2 record, first improving to 2-1. Then, facing a much stronger opponent (about 1k) in the last round, he resigned about half-way to yose, with his head held high, being about 15 points behind after a solid game. Snowmen 2d was the winner of the American-European division.

05-09-25 Yokozuna Asashoryu confirmed his exceptional position in contemporary sumo as he clinched his sixth title in a row, tying historic record. Both Kotooshu and Asashoryu won their matches today and both stood at 13-2, heading to the playoffs. However, Asashoryu gave the Bulgarian no chance and quickly disposed of him, burying his title hopes. Kotooshu and maegashira-16 Kisenosato (12-3) were both given the Kanto-sho (Fighting Spirit Prize).

05-09-24 After Day 1 of the Kiseido September Tournament, Erestor 7k is tied for 13th place of 44 with an uninteresting 1-1 record, having bounced back with a win by resignation after a 10.5 point loss in Game 1.

05-09-24 Sekiwake Kotooshu suffered a second defeat in a row and stands now at 12-2. Kisenosato who pushed him out with oshidashi kept his title hopes alive and is 11-3. Asashoryu seems confident as he is now tied with Kotooshu at 12-2 after a victory over Chiyotaikai (10-4).

05-09-23 Yokozuna Asashoryu overpowered Kotooshu on the 13th day of the tournament to close the gap to 1 victory! The last two days are going to be very exciting! Can the young bulgarian sekiwake bring the Emperor's Cup to Europe for the first time in history or will Asashoryu clinch 6th title in the row, tying legendary yokozuna Taiho's feat?

05-09-12 Sekiwake Kotooshu is looking strong at Hon Basho, still maintaining unblemished 12-0 record, while yokozuna Asashoryu is already two off the pace at 10-2 after shock defeat from maegashira-5 Aminishiki. Ozeki Chiyotaikai who was in kadoban prior to this tournament stands at solid 9-3, having saved hiz ozeki status. More...

05-09-19 In Sumo's Hon Basho at Tokyo's Ryogoku Tokugikan, Bulgarian sekiwake Kotooshu is in the lead with a perfect 9-0 record, the sole yokozuna Asashoryu is one win off the pace with 8-1, as is rank-and-filer Maegashira-16 Kisenosato. Ozeki Kaio and sekiwake Wakanosato already retired from the 15-day meet with injuries.

"V té chvíli jsem si tíhu okamžiku neuvědomovala. Teprve po té úspěšné střele, když jsme získaly jednobodový náskok, jsem se rozklepala. Trenér mi řekl, aby šla vyhazovat míč z autu. Já dostala strach a přiznala, že to nezvládnu. Nechtěla jsem výsledek pokazit," uvedla Němcová.
