    R.I.P. Chiyonofuji
    #1
    I just stumbled over the report of the death of the great yokozuna Chiyonofuji. He was only 61 and died of pancreatic cancer. By sumo standards he was a lightweight, and won through a combination of technique and strength. His Wikipedia entry noted that he excelled as a runner in his youth, which I found interesting. I saw him wrestle at a modified tournament that was brought to Madison Square Garden in 1985.

    Konishiki sat a section down from my seat at Tokyo '91. The reverence he drew was outstanding.
