The win broke the tie he had set with his father Shigenobu, who had won 12 national titles!

Murofushi had delayed starting his national season due to completing his doctoral thesis on biomechanics of the hammerthrow, at Chuo University. Last week he achieved completion, and (the soon-to-be) Doctor stated that he would be ready for the World Championships – which he qualifies for with an ‘A standard’ performance at this National Titles.
