Asa: He came, He saw, He conquered

Yesterday Asashoryuu took home his 19th Emperor's Cup after another flawless 15-0 tournament. (His fifth perfect tourney). There's no stopping the man from Mongolia. He's well on his way to becoming a great Yokozuna. After all, when Takanohana retired he only had 22 tournament victories under his belt, Current head of the Sumo Kyoukai Kitanoumi had 24 and Chiyonofuji (the Wolf) had 31. It's only a matter of time before Asa smashes these records as he did last year with the record for most consecutive tourneys won.

Go Asa!
