0 Comments

American Jaelin Kauf earned her fourth World Cup win in the last year, beating a field that included all three PyeongChang moguls medalists in Thaiwoo, China, on Saturday.

Kauf, competing at the site of her first World Cup moguls victory last Dec. 21, totaled 83.08 points and held off Australian Jakara Anthony by .66.

The 22-year-old Kauf has more World Cup wins between moguls and dual moguls in the last year than any other woman but was seventh at the Olympics, missing the six-skier final by .78. The Wyoming native struggled with turns while having the fastest time of the penultimate round.

Kauf’s parents were both pro tour moguls champions. They never competed in the Olympics, but both later took up ski cross. Her mom made X Games podiums in 1999, 2000 and 2002.
