January 2017, Day 15, Osunaarashi v Nishikigi

Osunaarashi’s a tough dude, and he powers through the last day of the tournament despite some clear weakness or injury to his lower body. A gutsy performance sees him hit the ground hard after crushing out Nishikigi with a yoritaoshi, and it’s hard to watch him struggle back to his feet and up the dohyo for the final bow. There’s a woman in the front row with visible concern on her face. Hopefully he can take the time he needs to recover before next tournament, as this victory nets him only his fourth win against eleven losses, and he’s sure to drop down to the Juryo division next tournament.
