Hannah Kearney’s skis

© CIO / Jürg Donatsch

Hannah Kearney is an American freestyle skier. At the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, she won the gold medal in the moguls.

Specialists in freestyle skiing know how to link speed, spectacle and the ability to make aerial manoeuvres. This discipline appeared at the Calgary Games in 1988 as a demonstration sport. Four years later, at the Albertville Games, the first medal was up for grabs in the moguls competition.

The length of the skis is not regulated. For moguls, their average length is 185 cm for men and 175 cm for women. They are straight and slightly parabolic.
