One of the 4 hangers on who is still older than me in the sport of sumo has just retired. Koriyama, enjoy your retirement. He only retired because his stable closed and the stable that took on the stable-less wrestlers wouldn't take him because of his age. He was the youngest of the 4. The 3 remaining started sumo in 1986 more or less straight out of junior high school. After them, it is a 3 and a half year gap before you get to the next oldest wrestler.
