List of sumo tournament second division champions

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of wrestlers who have won the sumo second division jūryō championship since 1909, when the current championship system was established. These official tournaments are held exclusively in Japan.[1]

The wrestler who has won the most jūryō championships is Masurao, with five. Wakanami and Tagaryū are the only wrestlers to have won a jūryō championship after winning a makuuchi title.

1958 to present[edit]

The first table below lists the champions since the six tournament system instituted in 1958.[2] The championship is determined by the wrestler with the highest win-loss score after fifteen bouts, held at a rate of one per day over the duration of the 15-day tournament. In the event of a tie a play-off is held between the wrestlers concerned.[3] Names in bold mark an undefeated victory (a zenshō-yūshō). Figures in brackets mark the number of championships earned up to that tournament for wrestlers who won the championship more than once.
