抄録

The New Year sumo tournament of 2003 came to an end with Mongolian-born Ozeki Asashoryu winning the Makuuchi championship. His splendid record of fourteen wins and only one loss in the tournament assured his becoming a Yokozuna, the highest rank in the world of the Grand Sumo. The brilliant achievement by Asashoryu also underscored a rare event that happened for the first time in sumo history. Believe it or not, except for the Jonidan division, one of the lower rank divisions in sumo, all division champions in this tournament were ‘gaijin sumo wrestlers’.
