MEGEVE, France (March 15, 2015) – Hannah Kearney takes home the win to for her 46th career victory, tying the record held by Donna Weinbrecht since 1997.
“Getting the record is huge,” said Kearney. “To me, it’s almost perfect. Records are important to me because I think they are a testament to your training and results. Being even in the same category as Donna is huge. I never would have guessed that I would be compared to her.”
“It was a fairytale ending, to win both globes. I was watching the ski cross finishes because they were right next to ours. Anna Holmlund had won the last two days and as a result pulled ahead of me in the overall standings. So today I had to win in order to get that overall title. I was very aware of that. I just knew I had to ski well, so that was what I was focusing on. I just skied straight forward, and my turns really won it for me today.”
