Musashimaru, four others
undefeated in Summer sumo


TOKYO (AP) - Hawaiian-born yokozuna Musashimaru remained undefeated at 3-0 along with four other wrestlers Tuesday, the third day of the 15-day Summer Grand Sumo Tournament.

The four undefeated wrestlers are two ozekis - Chiyotaikai and Tochiazuma - No. 9 maegashira Dejima and No. 10 maegashira Kyokushuzan, or Batbayar Davaa from Mongolia.

In the day's final bout at the Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Arena in downtown Tokyo, Musashimaru, born Fiamalu Penitani, slapped No. 1 maegashira Aminishiki's face in the initial charge and pushed him out, leaving Aminishiki at 0-3.

Chiyotaikai charged No. 2 maegashira Takanonami with fierce hand thrusts against his foe's throat and bulldozed him out. Takanonami is 0-3.

Tochiazuma sidestepped to the left in the initial charge and tossed down komusubi Wakanosato, handing Wakanosato his second defeat against one victory.

Kyokushuzan charged No. 6 maegashira Takamisakari with a leg trick and threw him down, while Dejima forced out No. 5 maegashira Tamakasuga.

Both Takamisakari and Tamakasuga are 0-3.

In other major bouts, ozeki Musoyama pushed down No. 3 maegashira Takanowaka for his second victory against one defeat. Takanowaka is 0-3.

No. 3 maegashira Miyabiyama fought off ozeki Kaio's driving attempt at the ring's edge and downed Kaio with a neck throw, leaving both wrestlers at 1-2.

No. 2 maegashira Tosanoumi pushed out sekiwake Asashoryu, or Mongolian Dolgorsvren Dagvadrj, leaving both wrestlers at 2-1.

No. 8 maegashira Kotoryu also fought off No. 4 maegashira Kyokutenho's driving attempts at the ring's edge and threw him down, leaving both wrestlers at 2-1. Kyokutenho's Mongolian name is Tsevegynyam Nyamjav.
