Ozeki Kotoshogiku was kadoban in Nagoya and needed to have a winning record to avoid demotion. Collecting
his eighth win on the final day, he has assured himself of retaining his Ozeki rank for September.

Tochiozan has spent 19 basho in the sanyaku ranks, eight of them ranked at sekiwake. Following
a 10-5 score in the recent Nagoya Basho, he will again be ranked at sekiwake in September.
