Bradley Wilson of Butte, MT earned his first World Cup win in the dual moguls event in Inawashiro, Japan. "To earn my first World Cup win in Inawashiro is pretty unbelievable," said Wilson. "Everyone [U.S. Team] who came over here qualified for finals today. That just proves how strong our team is."
Wilson refers to the fact that he wasn't alone as the USA took three of the top four spots in both men's and women's. Joe Discoe (Telluride, CO) took third and Sho Kashima (South Lake Tahoe, CA) took fourth in his second competition back from injury. On the women's side, Mikaela Matthews (Frisco, CA) earned a career best second, followed by Hannah Kearney (Norwich, VT) in third and Eliza Outtrim (Hamden, CT) in fourth.
Athletes now have a week off before World Championships kick off March 5-10 in Voss, Norway.
