Vermonter Hannah Kearney keeps finding herself in the middle of success, the most distinguished of which was her nailing the coveted gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.
As a youth, high school state soccer and track team championships were followed by four Junior World Championship titles in moguls. When the multi-sport talent hit the moguls World Cup fulltime, she won two competitions in her rookie season–one when she was just 17 years old. A year later, Kearney was the 2005 moguls World Champion.
Then came Kearney’s unbelievable streak, when from January 2011 to February 2012 she literally could not be beat. Kearney notched 16 consecutive victories and eclipsed alpine legend Ingemar Stenmark’s record for the longest FIS World Cup win streak in all disciplines. In 2011 all those wins resulted in her first World Cup freestyle overall title, a second moguls globe and her third and fourth World Championships medals.
Kearney then went on to become World Champion yet again in single moguls in Voss, Norway in 2013. She also secured a bronze medal in duals. Kearney took nine more podiums throughout the 2013 season as well as another overall moguls title.
Dominance was again Kearney's middle name in the 2013-14 season. She was able to add another Olympic medal (a bronze), another overall globe and another moguls globe to her collection thanks to seven World Cup wins.
