Sekiwake Goeido, who has all but clinched his promotion to the ozeki rank after winning 12 bouts at the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament, fought and won his final three bouts with a hobbled left knee, his sumo elder Sakaigawa revealed on Monday.

Sakaigawa said that Goeido, 28, might have possibly seriously damaged his left meniscus when he was thrown down by yokozuna Harumafuji in a defeat on the 12th day in Nagoya.
