Autumn Sumo

Ah, yes, and a Mongolian is champion:

Mongolian grand champion Hakuho captured his first title since his promotion to sumo's highest rank Sunday, ripping through ozeki Chiyotaikai to claim the coveted hardware at the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament.

Hakuho won hisfourth career Emperor's Cup, finishing with a 13-2 record at the 15-day meet. The 22-year-old achieved the feat in his second basho since his promotion, although it was in the absence of suspension-hit grand champion Asashoryu — sumo's dominant force.
