Added the Pink’s Concert List, below. Not related to Sumo, but I had fun creating it. I was born in the early 1950s. I had the enthusiasm and the luck to be in places where I could see a lot of popular music events. I think I remember them all. Here’s my list:

I thought Ichinojo was close to the largest fighter. My memory failed me.

In July, I strung together 15 tournament results to make one VERY WIDE chart.

The chart starts with the results of the November Kyushu 2017 basho and ends with the banzuke for the

cancelled May 2020 tournament. I want to update this chart, but it a daunting task.

The links for the 15 basho chart are below the links for the three basho chart.

**********************Notes about Sumo and the charts

Note: The “special prizes” are shown for completed tournaments. That’s the Shukun-Sho (Outstanding Performance Award), the Kanto-Sho (Fighting Spirit Prize) and the Gino-Sho (Technique Prize) . These are not always given out.

Notes about the rankings: After the end of a basho, I post the results for the last three tournaments. This chart stays posted for about six weeks. About two weeks before the start of the next basho, a ranking of the competitors (rikishi) will be released by the Japan sumo elders–the new “banzuke”. I will release a new chart at this point, which shows the last two completed tournaments plus the banzuke ranking of the rikishi for the new tournament. The chart will show that in the new ranking, some rikishi from the last tournament have been demoted from the top level competition (Makuuchi) to the second level competition (Juryo). An equal number of rikishi that excelled in the last Juryo level competition are promoted to Makuuuchi for the upcoming basho. These promotions and demotions are noted with horizontal bars on the charts. The chart also shows Makuuchi tournament winners, along with prizes and possibly “Kadoban” status for Ozeki. I tried to make this chart 100% accurate, but errors may exist.

Use the zoom in/out feature of viewing program to adjust the chart height to match the height of your screen. Then use the horizontal slider on the program to move earlier and later in the chart.
