Russia WITH LOVE
On Feb. 12, American aerialist Emily
Cook returned to Moscow, the site of
her first World Cup victory (in 2008),
to earn her second career win.
As the planning for the 2014 Sochi
Games ramps up, organizers built up
another scaffolding ramp for this season’s aerials contest near downtown
Moscow. On the day of competition, a
fierce headwind threatened to cancel
the event, but Cook and her coaches
stuck with the original plan as the 13-
year U.S. Team veteran committed to
the highest degree of difficulty trick
( 3.525) on the women’s start sheet.
Cook nailed the full-double-full in the
first jump before the second round was
cancelled because of the wind.
