Hannah Kearney finishes 3rd to secure 6th overall freestyle World Cup moguls title


TAZAWAKO, Japan — Hannah Kearney of the United States finished third in Sunday's freestyle World Cup dual moguls event to clinch her sixth overall moguls title.

Kearney beat Canada's Alex-Anne Gagnon in the small final to earn 60 points, a result that gives her an insurmountable 145-point lead in the standings over Canada's Justine Dufour-Lapointe with one event left.

It was the fifth straight moguls title for the Vancouver Olympic gold medalist who is retiring at the end of this season. She also won the moguls title in 2009.

American Morgan Schild beat Satsuki Ito of Japan in the final to win her first title.

Mikael Kingsbury of Canada, who wrapped up the overall title on Saturday, beat compatriot Philippe Marquis for his seventh straight World Cup win. Australia's Matt Graham was third.
