Yokozuna Hakuho threw away his sole lead at the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament, slipping and falling on his charge on Tuesday to suffer his first loss of the 15-day event.

Sekiwake Tochiozan, who knocked off his second-straight yokozuna opponent, was the benefactor when Hakuho lunged to get a belt hold but missed and slipped down. The surprise win left both men and two others, yokozuna Kakuryu and ozeki Terunofuji, tied at 9-1 at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium.
