Newly promoted ozeki Goeido joins two Japanese-born wrestlers at sumo’s second-highest rank with the release on Monday by the Japan Sumo Association of the sumo rankings for the upcoming Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament.

Goeido, who gained promotion following the Nagoya basho in July, has been assigned a west ozeki position along with Kisenosato, while Kotoshogiku fills in the prestigious east slot after an outstanding 12-3 performance last time out.
