Ōsunaarashi Kintarō

6' 2 (189 cm)
Ōsunaarashi, whose chosen ring name translates into English as "great sandstorm", rose quickly through the unsalaried ranks, gaining the interest of Japanese media and popularity among sumo fans. He dropped in rank after injury problems and was forced to retire in March 2018 after being involved in a traffic accident when he was driving without a valid license. After leaving sumo he signed with Rizin FF, a Japanese national mixed martial arts organization where he joined other former rikishi like Baruto Kaito and Akebono Tarō.
Combat Approach
Ōsunaarashi's profile at the Japan Sumo Association listed his favoured techniques as tsuki/oshi, or thrusting and pushing. His two most common winning kimarite in his career were yori kiri and tsuki dashi . He was known for the power of his right arm in particular.
Fighter Trivia
It was reported that he found this especially challenging as wrestlers are expected to eat heartily and train hard everyday, especially in their younger years, to build up bulk. When tournaments coincide with Ramadan, he admitted this made his tournament appearances at this time more challenging as he had to train and wrestle on an empty stomach. In June 2016 he became a tourism ambassador for his native country, to encourage Japanese people to visit Egypt despite political upheaval.
