After Day 11 : September Basho
Although there is much disappointment amongst the Ozeki, the Maegashira ranks offer some much needed excitement in the sumo ring. Maegashira #11 Gagamaru is sitting in position to seriously challenge Yokozuna Hakuho. After a day one loss to Aminishiki he has gone on a 10 bout winning streak beating anyone who stepped in the ring. With a vital day 11 win against Baruto he is poised to do something really great. The last time a Maegashira won a tournament was in 2001 when Maegashira #2 Kotomitsuki won the September Basho. I am hoping that Gagamaru will win the tournament.
