稽古総見:内館さんのコメント

 読売(英字)
James Hardy / Daily Yomiuri Sportswriter

A week before the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament, an almost full house was on hand to watch yokozuna Asashoryu and the rest of the top makuuchi division go through its paces on Saturday in Tokyo.

The Japan Sumo Association moved practice for the Yokozuna Deliberation Council--normally held in a training ring at the Ryogoku Kokugikan--into the main arena after a similar display last year attracted a big crowd.

This year was no different, and the fans who filled the main stand and most of the balcony seats from 7 a.m. until the final wrestler was thrown just before 11 a.m. were treated to some crowd-pleasing "fan service" from the yokozuna.

The main attraction was the matchup between Asashoryu and heir apparent Hakuho, who is current owner of the Emperor's Cup and hoping to win big at the May 13-27 tournament.

On Saturday, Asashoryu only fought Hakuho once, throwing the ozeki down with a headlock throw. The yokozuna fought a total of nine bouts before he retired to the sidelines with ice on his left elbow.

He returned to the ring later to put sekiwake old and new through their paces, acting as a human tacklebag for Miyabiyama--now a No. 9 maegashira--who also was subjected to some mild hazing, and then new sekiwake Ama. Asashoryu forced Ama to move him from all corners of the ring, leaving the younger Mongolian covered in dirt and almost vomiting from his exertions.

Ama was one of a small group of wrestlers, that also included emerging favorite Homasho and new hope Tochiozan, who fought more than 10 times

Hakuho fought 12 times, mostly against fellow ozeki, and seemed relaxed and in good shape, as was noted by deliberation council member Makiko Uchidate after the practice.

"Hakuho looks stable," Uchidate said. "Apparently he has a cold today, but he still looks in good shape."

As for the yokozuna, Uchidate called his performance "harried" but said he was still the most skilful wrestler on show.

Both wrestlers were criticized earlier in the week after Asashoryu left new komusubi Toyonoshima injured after training, and Hakuho tried to ape the yokozuna's performance against a juryo opponent.

Uchidate was pleased there was none of that on show. "Hakuho and Asashoryu are very different characters... Hakuho just isn't that type of person," she said of their aggressiveness in training.

"But today was excellent for the fans. Asashoryu is a different kind of yokozuna--he is very popular with the crowd, as we saw. The way he got them going at the end [with Ama and Miyabiyama], that was great to see."

内館さんのコメント

稽古総見の後、日本の記事に、内館さんのコメントって載っていました?
朝青龍のこと、ちゃんと褒めてるのに、褒めると記事にならないんですね!
朝青龍も、内館さんも、2人ともがかわいそうだと思います。


白鵬に関して By 内館

日本語でコメントされた物を英語にした記事なので、
それをまた日本語にするのは、語弊を生じかねるので要訳は載せません。

Hakuho looks stable. Apparently he has a cold today, but he still looks in good shape.
"harried" ←横綱昇進に関して
Hakuho and Asashoryu are very different characters. Hakuho just isn't that type of person.

総見での白鵬の事はそれなりに評価していますが、横綱昇進に関しては、
「早い」と思っておられるようですね。わかる気がします。

朝青龍のこと、ちゃんと評価しているんです。
こういうのを日本の新聞も載せて欲しいなぁ、と思いますよ。
