Chinese rikishi Sōkokurai (right) defeats yokozuna Harumafuji in a bout on the third day of the spring tournament in Osaka on March 14, 2017. This kind of victory by a lower-ranked maegashira wrestler over a yokozuna is recorded as a kinboshi (gold star) and it is Sōkokurai’s first. The 33-year-old rikishi was absent from the ring for more than two years due to suspected involvement in match fixing. (© Jiji)
