Shobushi Sumo Wiki – Biography

Shobushi Sumo, whose real name was Kiyotaka Suetake. The association said he died of multiple organ failure. He is reported to have been the first sumo wrestler to die from the virus, and the first person in his 20s to die in Japan from Covid-19.

Shobushi made his professional sumo debut in 2007 and reached No11 in the rankings in the sandanme division, the fourth-highest tier in sumo. He fought out of the Takadagawa stable, where six other people tested positive for Covid-19. Two of those were subsequently treated and released from the hospital, according to the Japan Times.

The Summer Grand Sumo Tournament scheduled to take place from 24 May to 7 June at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan was canceled earlier this month over fears of further spreading the virus. A large event later this summer is still scheduled to go ahead and is to be held without spectators.

Earlier this month, the sumo association canceled the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament and changed the venue of its July 2020 tournament. It will now take place at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan behind closed doors.
