Fourth World Cup gold for Cox

5 February 2017

MOGULS: Britt Cox has won her fourth world cup gold medal in mogul skiing in the dual mogul event in Deer Park, Utah.
 
Following her bronze in the single format mogul world cup event just two days ago, Cox maintained her career best form to win gold again and make it five podium finishes out of the six world cups this season.
 
Her win adds to another huge weekend for Australian winter sports, after Lydia Lassila’s aerial skiing win and Belle Brockhoff’s snowboard cross gold yesterday.

Cox retained her yellow bib as the current world number one and remains focused on each event taking just one step at a time.

“I didn’t think it was going to pan out this way this season, I’ve just been focused on every event that’s coming but it’s awesome to win again,” Cox said.

“The course was a lot more challenging tonight than it has been all week but my family got to see me win for the first time which is really special.”

It was also a landmark personal best night for team mate Brodie Summers, who reached the world cup podium for the first time by claiming the bronze.

​Speaking after his win in the small final, the 23-year-old shared his excitement.

“I’m so stoked right now, I was just having so much fun tonight and now I’m really on top of the world,” Summers beamed.

Summers raced against fellow Australian mogul skier Matt Graham in the eight final on his way to the podium, with Graham finishing 11th overall.

“It was just great to ski with my boy again, he had the tough line in that dual and I didn’t really know what was going on but he put up a really good fight,” Summers said.

Nicole Parks was the best placed of the remaining Australian female skiers finishing with a PB in 8th followed by Krystle Yin (12th), Jakara Anthony (19th), Claudia Gueli (26th) and Madi Himbury (29th).

In the mens, James Matheson was 20th with Cooper Woods-Topalovic (24th) and Rohan Chpman-Davies (39th).

The next world cup event for the mogul athletes is the Olympic Test Event in PyeongChang, Korea on February 10.
