Fujii becomes youngest to win 2 major titles
Teenage shogi sensation Fujii Sota defeated Kimura Kazuki in the fourth game of the Oi championship in Fukuoka on Aug. 20 to claim the title and become the youngest player in Japan to hold two major titles.
Fujii earlier became the youngest player to obtain one of the Japanese board game's eight major titles, when he won the Kisei tournament on July 16 aged 17 years and 11 months. His fourth straight win in the best-of-seven series Oi championship gave him the added honor of being the youngest player to hold two major titles, at the age of 18 years and 1 month.
The previous record holder was 49-year-old Habu Yoshiharu, who held both the Oza and Kio titles at the age of 21 years and 11 months.
With his two titles, Fujii also became the youngest to rise to the eighth-dan rank, surpassing 80-year-old Kato Hifumi, who reached the eighth dan at 18 years and 3 months.
Fujii's next chance to win a major title will be the Osho championship expected to begin in January 2021. If Fujii becomes the challenger, he will go up against Watanabe Akira, whom he previously defeated to win the Kisei title. Watanabe won the Meijin tournament on Aug. 15.
