Hakuho wins 13th Emperor's Cup

Hakuho wins 13th Emperor's Cup

Mongolian Hakuho has defeated compatriot Harumafuji to win his 13th Emperor's Cup at the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament.
Grand champion Hakuho sent ozeki Harumafuji sprawling to the dirt surface on Sunday with an arm throw to finish the spring tournament with a perfect 15-0 record.
Estonian Baruto finished with a 14-1 record after a win over Kotomitsuki and is virtually assured of being promoted to the sport's second-highest rank of ozeki for the next tournament.
Hakuho is the sole grand champion competing in sumo following the retirement of Mongolian Asashoryu, who was forced to leave the sport last month over claims he hit a man and broke his nose during a late-night drinking session in Tokyo.
