VANCOUVER (Feb. 10) - Jaime Myers (Boise, ID) overcame fog and poor weather Sunday for the best results of their World Cup careers in leading U.S. aerialists at the 2010 Olympic freestyle venue. In a one-jump contest,Myers finished ninth for the women at Cypress Mountain.

"We had some great training this week, but today was miserable. I've never seen so many different kinds of weather in such a short time," U.S. Aerials Head Coach Matt Christensen, a native Canadian, said after the conclusion of the meet. "There wasn't anything the organizers could do, but once they finished the women's qualifying round, Joe Fitzgerald [International Ski Federation competition director for freestyle] said, 'That's it. No more.' So, the qualis turned out to be finals."

In the women's contest, World Cup leader Jacqui Cooper of Australia stuck her full, full, full (three twists, three flips) for 101.85 points. Teammate Lydia Lassila was runner-up at 95.17.

Myers was ninth with 81.58 from a full, full (two twists, two flips) and Jana Lindsey (Black Hawk, SD) was 10th with 75.25. Emily Cook (Belmont, MA) finished 17th.

"The weather wasn't as bad for the men as it was for the women," Christensen said. "But, it just wasn't a nice day. The fog was so tough, and the rain and some snow...just so sloppy. Good results for Scotty and Jaime, but not a lot of other good stuff."

The World Cup tour heads next to Inawashiro, Japan, for three days of competition at the 2009 FIS Freestyle World Championships site. Friday will be ski halfpipe action with moguls Saturday and aerials Sunday.
