Ayumu Hirano was born and raised in Murakami, a small coastal city in Japan’s mountainous northwestern region. His mother named him Ayumu, which means “to walk the dream” in Japanese. She wished for him to pursue his desire and walk the path of completion with the perseverance of making all of his aspirations come true. Hidenori is Ayumu’s father’s name.

Hidenori is also a surfer who eventually started a surf store and grabbed the attention when he opened the skate park called Nihonkai Skate Park, from scratch available in his hometown of Murakami. The father opened the surfing business with the hope that one day his son would fall in love with the sport and pursue it professionally. Ayumu, on the other hand, disliked surfing. Instead, he pursued his passion for skateboarding and followed in the footsteps of his older brother, Eiju, who is nearly three years his senior.

Ayumu Hirano’s Professional Career

Ayumu first appeared in international games in March 2011. He won the Burton US Junior Open for the first time. Until that point, he had been following his guru, Kazuhiro Kokubo. His older brother competed in the event and finished sixth. Ayumu Hirano, the world record holder, was invited to Burton High Fives in 2012, an event hosted in New Zealand at the time where Ayumu won the gold medal at the age of 13. He was later asked to compete in the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, later that year (the biggest snowboarding non-Olympic stage).

Ayumu won a silver medal at the event, despite being only 14 years old and finishing second to Shaun White. With that accomplishment, he rose to prominence and amassed a sizable fan base. Ayumu later began to participate in numerous events. Among these were the Burton European Open (where he finished first), the Burton US Open (where he finished second), and the Oakley Arctic Challenge (where he finished third). He eventually earned the halfpipe World Tour CHampion in 2012/13. With all of his accomplishments, he became the youngest rider. Ayumu earned a silver medal in 2014, finishing second to Switzerland’s Iouri Podladtchikov.

Breakthrough Performance in the Olympic Winter Games in 2022

Hirano just won the halfpipe event in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. He was first caught up in the ensuing debate over his successful second run. In the second run, he scored a total of 91, one of his remarkable performances, which featured a triple cork, which had never been landed in the Olympics. Hirano then repeated his outstanding performance in the third round. He was successful in landing a “too dangerous” triple cork. As a result, he won the gold medal. With this accomplishment, he became one of the first Olympic athletes to win a gold medal in snowboarding in Japan, particularly in the Winter Olympics. In addition, he became the first Japanese athlete to win an Olympic medal in three consecutive winter games.
