Hakuho Wins Sumo Tournament

I've been so involved in watching William Wyler movies I let this news slip, but Hakuho has won his 11th Emperor's Cup.

from The Japan Times:
Hakuho was made to work all the way by Asashoryu (10-5) in an enthralling encounter at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium, but the Miyagino stable star prevailed with a stylish underarm throw at the ring's edge to capture the title with a 14-1 record.
