EMILY COOK LANDS BACK ON THE PODIUM AFTER FIVE YEARS

PENTICTON, B.C. (March 19) - Aerialist Emily Cook (Belmont, MA) stepped onto her first World Cup podium in five years Sunday, finishing third at World Cup Finals. Eric Bergoust (Missoula, MT) had the top U.S. men’s result, finishing sixth. Belarussians won both events with Dmitri Dashinski clinching the men’s World Cup title with his victory.
Alla Tsuper of Belarus won the women’s event at Apex Mountain Resort with 184.63 points and China’s Shuang Cheng was second at 178.44. Cook, clicking with a lay full and full, full (two twists, two flips), had 171.85 while Jill Priest (Park City, UT) was 10th.
It’s the first top-3 for Cook since Jan. 6, 2001 when she also finished third, at Deer Valley, Utah. Cook, who had qualified for the 2002 Olympic Teams, was off the World Cup for two and a half seasons after shattering her feet in a bad landing during training on the eve of the Olympics; she returned before the 2005 season and made this season’s Olympic Team, finishing 19th.

She is a three-time World Cup Champion — 2003, 2004 and 2005. Her wins are a testament to her consistency in races. She has skied as fast as 142 miles per hour. That's double the speed you're going when you get pulled over on the highway.
