    His life was cut short, but it certainly was a full one.

    Chiyonofuji/Kokonoe Oyakata is a personal training inspiration to me. When I am having trouble getting that last shiko out I look at a picture of him doing shiko and it helps me get those last few reps out. He will be greatly missed by the world of sumo. Cancer is the great equalizer. It has no regard for the strong or the weak. RIP.
