May 2017, Day 6, Mitakeumi v Goeido

Whoo, that’s a pretty throw. Mitakeumi meets Ozeki Goeido hard in the center of the dohyo, and does well to halt his forward momentum when Goeido jumps to the side. Goeido charges forward and smashes into Mitakeumi, who tries his own sideways maneuver. But the Ozeki adjusts instantly, getting a right arm underneath and putting his right leg in perfect position, transitioning into as smooth a shitatenage (underarm throw) as you’ll ever see. Watch Goeido’s feet during the throw – he’s so anchored to the ground, they don’t move at all. Solid.
