United States' Hannah Kearney jumps during qualifying in the women's moguls at the Rosa Kutor Exreme Park ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics, Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Team USA's Hannah Kearney's bid for another Olympic gold medal in women's moguls is off to a flawless start.
The defending champion cruised through qualifying on Thursday, posting a score of 23.05, well clear of Canada's Chloe Dufour-Lapointe for the top spot.
Justine Dufour-Lapointe took third and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe finished eighth, assuring all three sisters a spot in the finals.
The top 10 finishers automatically advanced to the finals, with the remaining competitors returning for a second qualifying run on Saturday to fill out the rest of the field.
Eliza Outrim finished fourth to move on to the finals but her U.S. teammate Heidi Kloser did not compete after sustaining a leg injury in warm-ups. Kloser will be re-evaluated and could return to competition on Saturday.
