CALGARY – American Hannah Kearney won the women’s World Cup moguls event Saturday and Canada’s Mikael Kingsbury topped the men’s field at Canada Olympic Park for the fifth straight time.
The 28-year-old Kearney is expected to retire at the end of the season.
“I haven’t made it an official announcement where it turned into some weird farewell tour with the whole emphasis on my past and things I’d done before,” Kearney said. “I’m still here to compete, but there’s a 99 per cent chance I’ll be retiring at the end of the season.
Canada’s Chloe Dufour-Lapointe was second, followed by sister Justine Dufour-Lapointe.
Kearney and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe are tied for the women’s overall World Cup lead.
Kingsbury began his Calgary winning streak in 2011.
“I know when I’m on it I can win every day,” Kingsbury said. “I just need to continue to ski well and continue to have fun. I know I’m going to be OK for the season.”
Canada’s Simon Pouliot-Cavanaugh was second. Japan’s Sho Endo finished third.
