Sorato Anraku is booked for Paris 2024

Sorato Anraku the overall World Cup winner in both Lead and Boulder, was rather superior in the Asian Olympic qualifier. The 16-year-old won all three rounds with at least 20 points and as a matter of fact, he topped all three Lead routes. In the final, Sorato scored 199.7 points after flashing also three out of four boulders. The runner-up was Yufei Pan from China with 164.9 points. Complete results

I’m so happy to get the Olympic ticket. I was quite calm on the Boulders and I performed well. I didn’t know the scores in Lead and I don’t want to know them, I just focus on myself and getting to the top. Now I want a gold medal in Paris.
