Day 14 – 2010 January Grand Sumo Tournament Leaders
Asashoryu sent Harumafuji sprawling to the dirt surface with an arm throw in Saturday’s final bout at Ryogoku Kokugikan to improve to 13-1 and secure the Emperor’s Trophy with one day left in the 15-day tournament. Harumafuji fell to 10-4.
It was Asashoryu’s 25th title overall and first since the fall tournament in 2009. Mongolian Hakuho and Estonian Baruto both won and improved to 11-3 but saw their title hopes dashed when Asashoryu overpowered Harumafuji.
