September 2016, Day 9, Chiyonokuni v Arawashi

Chiyonokuni is light on his feet, strong with his hands, and elusive (more than once I’ve seen him use a level change with his head to fluster his opponent), until it’s time to plant his feet and put Arawashi on his backside. After an injury two years ago dropped him to the Sandanme (fourth from the top) division, he’s showing he’s recovered, improving to 5-4 at his highest-ever rank of Maegashira 6.
