July 2016, Day 15, Shodai v Tochinoshin

OK, right at the beginning of this video there’s totally a guy picking his nose. And right in front of him is another old guy with a little girl’s haircut. But the sumo is really great! Tochinoshin finishes with a disappointing 6-9 record at his highest-ever rank of Sekiwake, but he turns in a good performance on the last day against Shodai, mixing tsuppari thrusting attacks with solid footwork and a well-timed slap down.
