Today is the 2nd day of the July Grand Sumo Tournament and Kotooshu got his first winning.
We say “Shonichi ga deta” when a Sumo wrestler got his first winning on a Grand Tournament. “Shonichi” generally means the first day, and “deta” is the past tense of “deru” and it means to appear. Then, we say, “Kotooshu ni Shonichi ga deta” and it might be “The first winning of the tournament appeared on Kotooshu” in English.
He seemed being very nervous even today and it is the biggest problem for him. He must win against his nervousness if he wants to be a Yokozuna because the pressure must become bigger when he become a Yokozuna.
The situation is very hard. I think it will be difficult for him to be a Yokozuna even if he win all the rest of match because he lost yesterday very badly against Aminishiki, the only one wrestler who defeated Kotooshu on the last tournament in May. But it would be very good experience for his mental problem to keep fighting for 15 days under such a big pressure.
I wish he grab his fortune through the tournament.
Do your best, Kotooshu!
I want to see your Dohyo-iri!
