May 2017, Day 3, Tamawashi v Mitakeumi

This Mitakeumi kid is going places, I tell you. He stays calm under the withering pressure of Tamawashi’s relentless attack, absorbing blow after blow to his face, chin, and throat before finding the perfect moment to sneak his left arm around Tamawashi’s body and twist. Tamawashi rolls to the ground with Mitakeumi on top, giving Mitakeumi a sukuinage (beltless arm throw) victory for his third win of the tournament. It also gives him seven straight wins over Tamawashi in their head-to-head bouts.
