Today at the  rijikai: "Maybe we don't need to withdraw whole heyas when
someone is tested positive? How about we test the rikishi and let the
negative ones continue?" asked some Oyakatas. "We are a public interest
incorporated foundation and have to abide by the laws of the land, but
maybe we can find a  workaround here.." suggested Shibatayama Oyakata.

The Natsu jungyo (regional exhibition tournaments) are slated to start on
August 5th after a few years of hiatus. More rikishi, gyoji and tokoyama
have been found positive to the virus, announced Shibatayama Oyakata today.
"There are even small heyas where everyone was found positive. Still, we
are not talking about postponing or canceling at this stage. All those
participating will undergo daily antigen tests," he added.

Another great Japanese hope Keita Kawazoe (23) has been officially granted
the Makushita 15 tsukedashi entry status as he  is a college Yokozuna. He
will be joining Miyagino beya, which is quickly becoming a powerhouse.
