Jonidan Ura’s Comeback Basho Victory

Translated from: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nikkansports.com/m/battle/sumo/news/amp/201911100000188.html

Former top division wrestler, now Jonidan 106, Ura (27, Kise-beya), had an easy victory in his return after 5 tournaments off.

“I was absurdly nervous.” Ura said, looking back on his oshidashi win against Daishojo.

Ura had a surgical revision on his right knee back when he was in the top division, causing him to drop down to the Jonidan division. Despite that, he is looking to the future, “There is still room for me to grow in my abilities. I want to make my body strong.”
