Fifth Straight Win for Kearney
CALGARY, AB (Jan. 29) – Olympic Champion Hannah Kearney (Norwich, VT) continued her unbeaten streak Saturday with a fifth consecutive individual moguls World Cup victory. Kearney led four U.S. women into the top 10 in Calgary.
Saturday’s finals were cold and snowy, providing conditions that were radically different from the 50 degree slush experienced Thursday for qualifying. Despite the weather, the U.S. women put all four athletes into the top 10.
"The conditions were a little bit challenging," said Kearney. "It kept changing as the snow accumulated. It caused the bumps to get really deep, which caused problems for some skiers."
With Kearney earning her fifth straight victory, Eliza Outtrim (Steamboat Springs, CO) just missed the podium in fourth. Heather McPhie (Bozeman, MT) finished sixth and Heidi Kloser (Vail, CO) eighth.
"I’m really happy right now," exclaimed Kearney. "I’m feeling very excited to head back to American soil. I think we are in a great position headed into World Championships."
Freestyle Head Coach Scott Rawles gave his assessment of Kearney’s performance. "Hannah is full of confidence right now. She didn’t even train yesterday, she just came out and got it done again! She has a lot of confidence and momentum rolling into Deer Valley."
The World Championships hosted by Deer Valley Resort in Park City will run Feb. 2-5. Individual moguls finals are scheduled for Wednesday Feb. 2, the first day of competition.
