Fil-American skier Asa Miller booked himself a ticket to the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.

Miller, who also represented the Philippines in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games, announced the development on Instagram Tuesday.

"Hi everyone! I’m extremely excited to announce that I’ll be making my second Olympic appearance in Beijing 2022! Big thank you to everyone who’s helped me on my skiing journey so far," he said.
