Yokozuna Hakuho, who was seeking to extend his record championship haul to 41, pulled out of the ongoing Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament on Wednesday due to a right knee injury.

Hakuho won his first three bouts in the 15-day meet at Dolphins Arena, but the 33-year-old Mongolian from the Miyagino stable was diagnosed with injuries to his patellar tendon and shin bone requiring two weeks of recovery period.
