Japan has earned two berths in men’s skeleton for next month’s Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, according to the quota allocation list announced by the International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation on Monday.

The quotas are assigned based on the IBSF rankings, with 20 women and 30 men to compete in the head-first sled race at the Feb. 9-25 event in South Korea. One automatic berth is given to the host country for each gender.
