The longest Sumo Champ reign in history ended today, as the 18 match
reign of Hakuho came to a screeching halt at the hands of former champ
Kotomitsuki, who regains the Sumo Champ title for the first time since
Day 5 of the Natsu Basho.
If past performance is any indication of the future, then tomorrow the
title likely goes back to the man who started all of this...Aasshoryu.
