    SLATE INFORMATION

    Background: The Autumn Tournament in the Sumo wrestling championships in Tokyo, has led to a clean sweep for Takanosato, who hoisted Chiyonofuji out of the ring in the final round of the competition. He won his bouts fifteen-nil, the first man to make the score since 1938. The two men are both Yokozuna (grand champions), and the final bout was a close run affair. The ancient sport, which follows closely-observed rituals, was watched by an enthusiastic crowd. The wrestlers themselves show little emotion, despite the gruelling atmosphere, although Takanosato acknowledged his opponent's powers at the end athlete, and his third title in this event overall. The sport attracts a large following in Japan, and the Autumn Championship Tournament played to a capacity crowd in Tokyo on September 25.
