"Tochinoshin’s victory will serve as a serious bridge between the Georgian and Japanese peoples. Today he is the main representative of Georgia in Japan. Despite the fact that there is a long distance between Georgia and Japan, our peoples have a lot in common and the role of Tochinoshin in our relations is special.

Levan told me that Georgia’s support largely contributed to his victories. At the end of our meeting, he told me: "You can be hopeful of us like we are of you”. Of course, we all are hopeful of him. I believe that there are big victories ahead," Giorgi Kvirikashvili posted on Facebook.

The first Georgian Ozeki Tochinoshin (born Levan Gorgadze) arrived in his homeland on June 4. Ozeki title was handed over to him on May 30, 2018, after becoming the vice-champion of 15-day Summer Grand Sumo Tournament held in Tokyo, Japan.

Gorgadze became the first Georgian and third European who has ever received the honorable rank. Tochinoshin won 13 of 15 bouts in the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament. He also won a total of 37 bouts in the last 3 tournaments, more than the 33 win benchmark for promotion. It is noteworthy that Georgians are especially proud because of his success and always express their support towards renowned sumo wrestler.

Before his arrival to Georgia, one of the heroes of Natsu Basho Levan Gorgadze (Tochinoshin) has addressed Georgian fans through social network and thanked them for their great support and love.

“My friends, thank you for supporting me! I have felt it and it made me stronger! All my successes belong to you. My victory is dedicated to Georgia and to the 100th Anniversary of Establishment of First Democratic Republic. I receive many messages, calls and letters from you. Due to my busy lifestyle, sometimes I am not able to answer each of you and express my love. I apologize for it and hope you don’t think that I do not pay attention to you. We will meet soon in our homeland!”, wrote Tochinoshin.
