Vermonter Hannah Kearney keeps finding herself in the middle of success, the most distinguished of which was her nailing the coveted gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, a title she will be fighting for again in Sochi.
As a youth, high school state soccer and track team championships were followed by four Junior World Championship titles in moguls. Once she hopped on the moguls World Cup circuit fulltime, the then-rookie Kearney was able to win two competitions – one when she was just 17 years old. A year later she was the 2005 moguls World Champion. In the 2011 season she secured her first freestyle overall title, a second moguls crown and her third and fourth World Championships medals. Kearney then went on to become World Champion yet again in 2013 in single moguls in Voss, Norway. She also secured a bronze Worlds medal in duals.
After an early season training injury, Kearney missed the first few World Cup stops but returned to the tour at her beloved Lake Placid, where she took the win. She went on to take nine more podiums throughout the season and her fourth overall moguls title.
Also notable was Kearney's winning streak from 2011-2012, where she notched 16 consecutive victories, eclipsing alpine legend Ingemar Stenmark’s record for the longest FIS World Cup win streak in all disciplines.
