Elder says Tochiazuma doubtful

Chances are high ozeki Tochiazuma will not compete in the upcoming Summer Grand Sumo Tournament as he has yet to recover from a left shoulder injury, the wrestler's father and sumo elder Tamanoi said Monday.

"The way things look now, it's unlikely he'll compete. It's rude to perform before the fans when he's not in top form. He should be able to make the announcement around Wednesday," said Tamanoi of the 27-year-old who was diagnosed with a broken shoulder in March.
