Congratulations Mitakeumi!!

Sumo wrestler Mitakeumi won his first career title yesterday. I cheered him on during his matches, and I cried when he cried during his interview. I'm so happy for him!

From the Asahi Shimbun:

NAGOYA--Sekiwake Mitakeumi clinched his first career title at the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament on July 21 as he leads the race with just one loss.
Mitakeumi, 25, defeated Tochiozan, rank-and-file maegashira No. 13, on Day 14 of the 15-day tourney at Dolphins Arena here by shoving him out of the ring.
Afterward, Mitakeumi was so overcome with emotion and wiping back tears that he could not respond to questions about his victory.
He is the first champion to have graduated from Toyo University, where he was a promising wrestler.
