Yokozuna Hakuho now holds virtually all of the sumo records for excellence.

The one major record which has so far eluded him is the 69-bout winning streak set by the great Futabayama
between 1936 and 1939. Hakuho has compiled many substantial winning streaks, the longest being the
63-bout run in 2010 and the most recent being the 33-bout run between March and July this year.

The rikishi to break this latest run was Takarafuji, who was also the last person to beat him before the run began.

Soundtrack: 'Bookends' by Paul Simon.
