Pink’s Sumo Ranking Charts-(May/July/Sept)

This three-basho chart shows the result of the September Aki Tokyo basho,

along with the July Nagoya and May Natsu Tokyo bashos.

Below is an (old) example detail from one of the charts. Clicking the image will open the Three Basho JPG chart in your browser. You can click on the “download” buttons to view a chart. PC users can right-click a button to “Save As” the specific version chart.

New for the September Aki basho results, the “special prizes” are shown. That’s the Shukun-Sho (Outstanding Performance Prize) and the Kanto-Show (Fighting Spirit Prize). These are not always given out.

Notes about the rankings: After each basho, some rikishi are demoted from Makuuchi level to the second level competition (Juryo). An equal number of rikishi that excelled in the Juryo level competition are promoted to Makuuuchi for the next basho. These promotions and demotions are noted, along with the Makuuchi tournament winner. I tried to make this chart 100% accurate, but errors may exist.
