TIGNES, France -- World champion Hannah Kearney of the United States won a World Cup moguls event Wednesday, and reigning champion Jeremy Bloom was fourth in his event.

Kearney had 25.75 points; runner-up Jennifer Heil of Canada finished with 25.37.

"I want to win everything this season," Kearney said, referring to the Turin Olympics. "That's my goal, but everyone here is going to be challenging. It's kind of up in the air."

Finland's Tapio Luusua won the men's event with 25.64 points, followed by Japan's Yugo Tsukita (25.63), Finland's Sami Mustonen (25.44) and Bloom (25.19).

"I had problems on the top of the run," Bloom said. "I've been having a lot of that recently."
