日本スノボ界初の金メダルに輝いた平野歩夢(23)の弟、平野海祝(かいしゅう、19)さん=日大=は、初の五輪で堂々の9位に入りました。1本目のランでは一発目で7メートル近い高さのエア(空中技)を披露し、周囲の度肝を抜いたと思います。順位以上のインパクトを残した19歳は「1番誰よりも飛んで、みんなが一目見て『すげー』という滑りができた。すごく納得できて、五輪を楽しめた」と胸を張っていました。

 兄の背中を追って競技を始め、ついに五輪決勝の大舞台での競演を果たした海祝さん。4番目に滑走すると、最初のエアで回転もしないまま高々と舞い上がり、見ている者に恐怖すら与えるような大跳躍で衝撃を与えました。持ち味たっぷりのルーティンで、点数こそ75・50点と伸びなかったが、超大技「トリプルコーク1440」を成功させた兄に勝るとも劣らない喝采を浴びました。

 日本代表の村上大輔コーチらにも「1番高く飛ぶ。記録よりも記憶に残す」と決勝前に予告していたといい、見事に有言実行しましたね。自身の順位についても「自分は何位かわかんないっすね(笑)。でも、自分がやりたい滑りはできた」と気にしていない様子で、「とりあえず兄ちゃんに金メダルを獲ってもらって良かったっすね」と兄の金メダルを自分のこと以上に喜んたそうです。

 兄・歩夢は2本目で「トリプルコーク1440」を入れた構成で初めて滑りきったものの、まさかの2位にとどまりましたが、大トリの3本目で大逆転。コースの下で見ていたという海祝は感無量で泣きそうになったといい、「(展開が)危ない状況だったが、最後に勝負強さを見せてくれて、自分はめちゃくちゃ感動した。小さい頃から兄ちゃんの努力を見てきたので、やっぱ(金メダルを)獲るべきは兄ちゃんだなと思っていた」とうなずいたそうです。

 歩夢も、弟のビッグエアに少なからず刺激を受けた様子。「ずっと兄弟でこの大舞台を経験したいという気持ちを持っていた。兄弟で高め合いながら、海祝もいい滑りをしていたし、それで(自分も)プッシュされたんじゃないかな。気持ちは高まってたっすね、確実に」と振り返りました。

 初の夢舞台で、大きな手応えと刺激を得た海祝は「また4年後もここ(五輪)に立って、次は兄ちゃんと一緒にメダルを獲って盛り上げたい」と意欲。「兄弟で違ったスタイルでやるのも面白い。自分は自分なりのスタイルを貫いて、兄ちゃんは兄ちゃんなりのスタイルでやっていってほしい」と、最高のライバルを意識していたそうです。

Kaishu Hirano (19), the younger brother of Ayumu Hirano (23), who won the first gold medal in the Japanese snowboarding world, was proudly ranked 9th in the first Olympics. In the first run, he showed off an air (aerial technique) with a height of nearly 7 meters in the first shot, and I think he was amazed by the surroundings. The 19-year-old, who left an impact higher than the ranking, said, “I flew more than anyone else, and everyone was able to slip at a glance. I was very convinced and enjoyed the Olympics.” rice field.

Kaishu started the competition following his brother’s back and finally played a competition on the big stage of the Olympic final. On his fourth run, he soared high in his first air without spinning, shocking the viewer with a horrifying leap. His routine was full of character, and although his score did not increase to 75.50 points, he received the same acclaim as his older brother who succeeded in the super-feature “Triple Cork 1440”.

It was said that coach Daisuke Murakami, the representative of Japan, had announced before the final that he would fly the highest, and that he would remember it more than the record. Regarding his ranking, he didn’t seem to care, “I don’t know how much I am (laughs), but I was able to do what I wanted to do,” and said, “I’m glad I got my brother to win the gold medal. He said he was more than happy with his brother’s gold medal.

My brother Ayumu slipped for the first time with the composition that included “Triple Cork 1440″ in the second run, but he stayed in the second place, but it was a big reversal in the third run of the big bird. Kaishu, who was watching under the course, said that he was almost crying because he was so impressed that he was in a dangerous situation. I’ve seen his brother’s efforts since then, so I thought it was his brother who should win the (gold medal). ”

Ayumu also seems to have been inspired by his younger brother Big Air. “I’ve always wanted to experience this big stage with my brothers. While I was raising each other with my brothers, I had a good slide at Kaishu, so I think I was pushed. Shin, surely. ”

Kaishu Hirano, who got a great response and inspiration from his first dream stage, said, “I want to stand here (Olympic) four years later and win a medal with my brother next time.” “It’s interesting to do it in a different style with your brothers. I want you to stick to your own style, and your brother should do it in your own style,” he said, conscious of his best rivals.
