Default Freestyle Team Promotes Six Athletes

PARK CITY, Utah (March 3) - The U.S. Freestyle Ski Team has promoted six athletes, including Emiko Torito (Denver) who won her first World Cup in January, Freestyle Program Director Polly-Jo Clark said.

Two athletes were elevated to the A Team and four, previously on the C Team, moved up to the B Team. The promotions came following the the conclusion of the traditional midseason North American World Cup swing.

Named to the A Team were Torito, who won a moguls contest Jan. 18 during the Nature Valley Freestyle Cup in Lake Placid, NY and World Cup rookie Pat Deneen (Cle Elum, WA), who produced two podiums, finishing third in each of the Lake Placid moguls events.

Named to the B Team were Landon Gardner (Missoula, MT), who finished second in dual moguls at the Visa Freestyle International World Cup at Deer Valley Resort in Utah and Kayla Snyderman (Winchester, MA), who was third in a moguls event at Whiteface Mountain outside Lake Placid. Also named to the B Team were Bryan Wilson (Butte, MT) and Jimmy Discoe (Ridgway, CO), who both had top-10 World Cup performances.

"We've had some great performances by young athletes this season, plus a big win for veteran Emiko Torito," said Clark.

Torito was on the podium again this past weekend, finishing third in dual moguls in Marianske Lazne, Czech Republic. The moguls skiers now head to Are, Sweden for two events this weekend, before finishing their schedule in Valmalenco, Italy at the World Cup Grand Finals.
