All wrestling and no study makes Harumafuji a dull boy?

We talked about the proverb “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” in some classes a couple of weeks ago. I thought I’d “recycle” it for those students to introduce the story about sumo wrestler Harumafuji and his decision to go to graduate school at Hosei University.

This news appeared on the English NHK site about a month ago, but the link has since gone dead. That’s very disappointing (this seems to happen a lot on the NHK English site), but I was able to take a screen shot of the article I’d saved. I couldn’t find any other articles in English about this. This is also disappointing. It’s an inspiring story.
