Hannah Kearney – Moguls Skiing

WEEK 7

You may have seen her in action or at the very least heard her name –  27-year old skiing veteran Hannah Kearney took home the gold in Vancouver and has her sights on repeating in 2014.

Hannah is not going to let injuries keep her from the podium in Sochi. She has had long stretches of injuries since her 2010 Olympic gold in moguls, but this two-time Olympian is vying to be the first moguls skier, man or woman, to win two Olympic gold medals! If you don’t think she has a chance, check out these stats: she is a 40-time World Cup moguls medalist (25 gold, six silver, nine bronze), a 14-time World Cup dual moguls medalist (11 gold, one silver, two bronze), and a three-time U.S. moguls champion (2006, 2010, 2011), and that’s not counting her 2013 accomplishments. Now, do you REALLY doubt that this former track and soccer athlete will reach her goal of two golds?

Stay tuned as Marketing Female Athletes brings you all the must-watch athletes for the Sochi Olympics.
