Top Ten Women Freestyle Aerial Skiers - 2014 Competition 1

By

Here's a look at the top Women Aerial skiers after the first competition of the 2014 FIS World Cup competition season at Beida Lake, China.

This competition, held in China, comes with few surprises as the China athletes dominated the top ten - except maybe that the big star - China's Mengtao Xu, who finished in first place at five of the six 2013 Aerial venues, was third here. She was behind USA's Ashley Caldwell and top finisher Nina Li.

It's hard to say if Xu's performance, competing on her home turf no less, is just an anomaly or if there's a real challenge to her dominance. Either way it should give a lot of confidence to Ashley Caldwell and the rest of the U.S. Team.
