November 2016, Day 4, Harumafuji v Aoiyama

Aoiyama puts up a good fight against Harumafuji, circling well each time the more mobile Yokozuna tries the left-handed overhand throw. He gets an underhand belt grip and it looks like he might have a chance until he tries his own underhand throw and his left leg squirts out from under him. The official winning technique is koshikudake, or “inadvertent collapse.”
