Bump Inspiration Videos For Kids No. 2

 

 

1) Hannah Kearney 1997-2008.  Watch her starting out as just a kid and making progress to world champion.

In 1997 she’s still just a floppy child.  By 2003 you can start to see the intense grownup skier.  Check out the lightning-bolt patches on the knees in 2001.

 

 

2) Canadian mogul skiing movie.  Beautiful atmosphere & skiing

3) Kick Start Mogul Skiing.  Can’t beat the soundtrack & the action

4) Canadian mogul turn drills.  Videos of drills & some text description of how they turn.

It's great seeing Hannah progress thru the years and seeing how she adapted the turns to what the judges wanted to see. And those hands, another significant jump.

 

All the vids are great.... makes me miss the bumps already. Not sure how I can get through this summer now :(

How did she progress technically?

You can see Hannah's improvement at her hip, keeping the waist facing the front, you really have to get that weight and be balanced on the dh ski. Starting around 01 you can start seeing the incredible absorption range she was getting, you have to be on center both laterally and fore/aft, imo just ridiculous for a 15-16 year old. Its no wonder she was slated to be an Olympian hopeful at such a young age. 

 

With that absorption range she could have skied by contouring on the back side and you can see some of that however this technique became less favorable to judges. The prevalent approach was to stayed in the troughs maintaining contact on the backside and frontside of the bumps. 

 

 

hip don't lie

IMO the most notably difference is speed. Also the bump courses became better along with her progress. This allowed her to stay closer to the fall line and link her turns quicker allowing her to keep her upper body facing forwards. She was probably also not as fit at the beginning. Good flexing and extending range. Her style however did not change that much. You can clearly see that its the same girl in all the videos.
