Hannah Kearney is a master at balancing acts, even when she isn't speeding down a mogul field. Born in Hanover, New Hampshire, Kearney was on skis at age two and started in the Ford Sayre after-school freestyle program at age seven. She honed her skills with the Waterville Valley Black and Blue Trail Smashers and, in high school, became World Junior Champion in freestyle skiing, in addition to leading her high school team to state soccer and track championships. She focused on World Cup moguls full-time in 2004, won her first world title in 2005, and competed in her first Olympics in 2006. In 2010 the “half Canadian” (she has lots of relatives north of the border) added Olympic gold to her four national titles and two Overall Freestyle World Cup titles. When not competing, she attends Dartmouth College and in her free time likes to ride horses, knit (she donates much of her knitting to charity), play soccer, read, and watch her brother Denny play hockey.
