Two-time Olympic snowboard silver medalist Ayumu Hirano all but secured his Tokyo Games berth in men’s park skateboarding Friday at a Dew Tour event that is also the final Olympic qualifier.

Despite finishing 26th, the 22-year-old maintained his lead in the qualifying rankings for Japan’s lone host nation spot after Yuro Nagahara was 30th and Kensuke Sasaoka 49th. The rankings are from qualifying results since 2019.
