Yokozuna Hakuho increased his record total of grand sumo tournament championships to 37 on Saturday, when he won the 15-day Summer Grand Sumo Tournament with a day to spare.

A day after dodging a bullet to see off previously unbeaten ozeki Kisenosato, the Mongolian master beat compatriot and fellow yokozuna Harumafuji (10-4) to improve to 14-0. Kisenosato followed Hakuho to the raised ring for the day’s final bout, but was easily forced out to his second straight loss.
