Tochinoshin Enters Grand Tourney As Sekiwake

Following a successful championship run in January, Georgian wrestler Tochinoshin will compete in March at sumo’s third-highest rank of sekiwake, according to the rankings published Monday by the Japan Sumo Association.

As reported by the Japan Times, when he enters the ring at Edion Arena Osaka for the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament, it will be the second time he will enter a grand tournament as a sekiwake, the first time came in September 2016 when Tochinoshin was demoted after going 6-9.

The March tourney will mark his first appearance as a sanyaku wrestler, meaning he will fight in one of the three ranks below yokozuna, since January 2017, when he pulled out after suffering a right meniscus injury. No 1 Umrah Packages Providers in Pakistan now offering cheap umrah services on lower rates.
