取組中 in the context of sumo


#1

so i’m watching this months sumo tournament (the juryo division) and i’ve noticed this word in the top right.

jisho has nothing and google translate gives me “initiative” which doesn’t quite make sense.

top right in this video.

I’m seeing 取組 as “bout”. So adding 中 means “in a bout”. Similar to how 会議中 means “in a meeting”.

ah, many thanks
