What is the meaning and purpose of 一連覇中 here? Does it mean he became champion multiples?

Won't 日本の王者 just mean the same thing?

1 Answer 1


There is no such a word as 一連覇 or 一連覇中. It's parsed like 日本一 + (連覇 + 中).

  • 日本一【にほんいち】: (Japan's) number one; being a champion (in Japan)
  • 連覇: straight victory; successive winning
  • -中(の): in the middle of ~

despite being a reigning champion winning multiple times in a row

日本の王者 does not have the meaning of 連覇中 ("currently winning in a row").
