Underdog sumo wrestler defies odds to win tournament

Tokushoryu, one of the lowest ranked competitors at the New Year Grand Sumo Tournament in Tokyo, has beaten the odds to become a sumo champion. Tokushoryu beat ozeki Takakeisho (ozeki is the second highest ranking in sumo), to win his first trophy on Sunday night. Tokushoryu burst into tears after the match, a rare show of emotion in a typically stoic sport. ’I had nothing to fear’, he said.
