May 2017, Day 2, Mitakeumi v Daieisho

Mitakeumi, just entering his third year in professional sumo, finds himself on the brink of the upper echelon of ranks. Currently Komusubi, a good record this tournament could see him promoted to Sekiwake, one rank below Ozeki. His performance these first two days looks promising, and today he dominates Daieisho with a solid initial charge and a quick flurry of thrusts to send Daieisho packing.
