The performance sees Anthony equal former teammate Britt Cox for the most mogul skiing World Cup wins in a season by an Australian mogul athlete, and now has 15 career World Cup gold medals, moving closer to legendary Australian mogul skier Dale Begg-Smith’s 18 career victories and within sight of Jacqui Cooper’s all Australian winter sport record of 24.
The NSWIS skier was again dominant winning all three phases of the competition, scoring 82.01 points in the super-final to record a large victory margin of 7.14 points over American Jaelin Kauf in second place, with Hinako Tomitaka of Japan rounding out the podium in third.
“It’s getting a little tricky in there now, I definitely think I came out and did some of my best skiing in qualifications, which isn’t normally how it goes, but loving getting to ski out here on the course, it’s pretty fun,” said the 25-year-old from Barwon Heads in Victoria.
“It’s my third World Cup here and first win, one place better than last year.”
In the men’s event, the 2018 Olympic silver medallist Matt Graham was the best placed Australian in ninth, with NSWIS teammate Cooper Woods also advancing through to finals in 15th place. Graham’s performance was a very positive return to competition after a month’s break in Australia.
Also in action for Australia was George Murphy in 32nd and Oliver Logan in 38th.
