Sumo wrestler Takakeisho promoted to ozeki   

The Japan Sumo Association on March 27 officially decided to promote Takakeisho from sekiwake to ozeki, the second- highest rank in sumo.

The 22-year-old wrestler, who hails from Hyogo Prefecture, is the first to reach the rank since Tochinoshin did so after last year's Summer Grand Sumo Tournament in May.

In a ceremony at a hotel in Osaka to mark his promotion, Takakeisho stated, "I will proceed with effort on the path of sumo without forgetting appreciation and compassion, having great regard for Japanese chivalry in order to live up to the name of ozeki."

Takakeisho scored his first tournament win in November last year, when he stood at the fourth rank of komusubi, achieving a tally of 13 wins and two losses, then scored 11 wins in the New Year tournament. In the spring tournament that ended on March 24 with Yokozuna Hakuho winning a record- extending 42nd championship, Takakeisho notched up 10 wins.

In doing so, he surpassed the association's criteria for promotion of winning at least 33 bouts over three consecutive tournaments as a "sanyaku" wrestler in one of the three ranks below the top rank of yokozuna.
