Vancouver (AFP) - America's Hannah Kearney won the women's moguls freestyle skiing gold Saturday, beating Canada's Jennifer Heil, who notched the host country's first medal of these Games, into second place.
Kearney, who was in top spot after qualifying, scored 26.63 points, with 2006 Olympic champion Heil scoring 25.69. Shannon Bahrke of the United States won the bronze with 25.43 points.
Kearney's win also extended Canada's long wait to win Olympic gold on home ground with the hosts having failed to do so at the 1976 Montreal Summer Games as well as the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary.
