Kearney, Kingsbury take dual moguls wins in Meribel


Hannah Kearney American Hannah Kearney and Canadian Mikael Kingsbury won the first World Cup dual moguls competitions of the season today (Dec. 20) in Meribel, France.

Kearney, the 2010 Olympic gold medalist, faced off against Canadian Justine Duford-Lapointe in the final to come away with her 21st career World Cup win. Fellow American Heather McPhie won the small final to take third and notch her sixth career Cup podium.

“It was snowing really heavily on the course, I tried to ski as fast as I could off the top air, do a heli on the bottom and just go as fast as I could to beat people to the bottom of the jump where the judges could see us,” said Kearney. “This is a great way to head home for the holidays from Europe. It’s always really great to be able to share the podium with your teammates.”

Kingsbury went up against Frenchman Anthony Benna in the men’s final and held on for his fourth career victory.

“It was a perfect day with the snow, it was icy yesterday, but it snowed all day today so it was great for the finals,” said Kingsbury. “I just made training like competition and took it one dual at a time.”

American Sho Kashima grabbed his second World Cup podium in as many competitions in third place. He grabbed his first career World Cup top-three finish just ten days ago with a second place finish in Ruka, Finland

Kashima was closely followed by U.S. teammates Jeremy Cota, and Patrick Deneen in fourth and fifth, respectively.

“If you would have told me that I would have two good results before Christmas I would have thought you were crazy,” said Kashima. “It’s pretty great what being healthy will do for you along with good off season training. It just translates into good results. I’m going to head over to Quebec a little early to get some good training there.”
