Women’s moguls was the first freestyle event held in Torino, starting on 11 February. There were several contenders. The defending champion was Norwegian [Kari Traa], who was not as dominant as she had been in 2001-02. The 2005 World Champion was American [Hannah Kearney] but the World Cup leader in the 2005-06 season was Canadian [Jennifer Heil]. Heil led the qualifying with Traa getting through in seventh place, but Kearney fell on her second jump, and placed 22nd, failing to advance. In the final, Heil had the second fastest run, and although her degree of difficulty was only average, she had a flawless run to win the gold medal. Traa’s run was somewhat slow, but a high degree of difficulty overcame some average turns and airs points to win the silver medal.
