Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The matches of the final day of the July Grand Sumo Tournament took place at the Ryogoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan on August 2. By coming out triumphant over his opponent, Terunofuji G.Gan-Erdene claimed his second championship title.

 

He won his first championship in the May Grand Sumo Tournament in 2015, earning the promotion to sumo’s second highest rank of ozeki at the age of 23. Following a shoulder injury in 2016 and a break from the professional sumo wrestling scene due to health reasons in 2017, he fell to the second lowest jonidan division. Continuing to climb through the divisions from 2019, this tournament was his comeback to the top division with great performance.
