Yokozuna Harumafuji, left, flips after being slapped down by maegashira No. 3 wrestler Onosho, on Day 5 of the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament at Tokyo's Ryogoku Kokugikan sumo venue on Sept. 14, 2017. Harumafuji's recent losing streak marks the first time in 14 years that a yokozuna has bitten the dust for three consecutive days. "My body is moving, but that's not leading to results," Harumafuji said. Twenty-one-year-old Onosho said he was happy with the victory, which marked his first win over a yokozuna. In the first tournament in 1955, yokozuna Chiyonoyama suffered three straight losses but went on to win overall. (Mainichi)
