How high Ayuma Hirano is!

This kid is really good. I think he's only about 13 or something. He's been training in the US with Kokubo (the ex-Olympian criticized for wearing his shirt out during the 2010 opening ceremonies) and he's been ripping it up.

Congrats to Hirano. Glad to see some Japanese youngsters going head to head with the traditional winners and beating them. Keep it up for Russia next year!
