QUOTES Hannah Kearney I’m really happy with my skiing today, all three runs were strong and that’s the consistency I want. Skiing one amazing run and two bad runs is not going get you the win in this new format.
Jeremy Cota I’m pretty excited, it was a long day. I qualified for finals in sixth, so tactically made the choice to add a different jump to the top, with a higher degree of difficulty. I was really happy with the way I skied and did a new jump in competition, a back double full.
K.C. Oakley It was great, you never know when it’s going to come, but I had an awesome finals run today. Also I had the two of the quickest runs of the day, which helped me a lot. This was a steeper longer course and that really fit my skiing.
Scott Rawles, Moguls Head Coach We have such a deep team. It seems like somebody else steps it up each week, so K.C. Oakley stepping up to get her first podium is huge. She is the seventh different U.S. athlete to be on the podium this year. Obviously Hannah with 12 wins in a row is on an historic roll.
