Although she entered the 2014 Winter Olympics favored to defend the moguls title she earned at the 2010 Games in Vancouver, team USA's Hannah Kearney finished third in the Feb. 8 finals after a pair of dominant performances by powerhouse Canadian sisters Justine Dufour-Lapointe and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe claimed gold and silver. Eliza Outtrim, the only other American who made the six-athlete final round, finished sixth, while gymnast turned skier Heather McPhie came in 13th.

Kearney, the 27-year old reigning World Cup champion in women's moguls, was the top qualifier entering the three-pronged final round, which began with 20 skiers before the pack was whittled down to 12, and then just six. Her final run of the competition scored a bronze medal worthy 21.49. Justine Dufour-Lapointe's winning mark was 22.44, nearly a full point higher than that of Kearney.

Kearney's medal is the second earned by team USA in Sochi. The first went to snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg, who won the first-ever Olympic snowboard slopestyle event earlier in the day on Feb. 8.

With two Olympic medals now in her pocket, Kearney plans to retire from the sport to focus on finishing school, according to a Feb. 6 Powder Magazine article.

Freestyle skiing at the 2014 Winter Olympics is scheduled to continue Feb. 10 at 6 AM Pacific time with the first qualifier for the men's moguls event.
