Mongolia’s Terunofuji Haruo has captured its third top division title after he claimed the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament that took place this past two weeks in Tokyo, Japan.
The 29-year-old rikishi claimed the “Haru Basho” tournament with a 12-3 record and thanks to his outstanding performance he’ll get promoted to sumo’s second-highest rank “ozeki” once again.
Terunofuji netted the title with a great final day win, defeating “ozeki” Takakeisho via oshidashi. This was his second top-tier title in the span of 8 months, following his Emperor’s Cup at the 2020 “Nagoya Basho”.
Bulgaria’s Daniel Ivanov-Aoiyama finished the tournament second with a 11-4 record.
