Aussie's hot streak continues with fifth victory

SKIING: Australian moguls skier Britt Cox's hot streak in World Cup events has continued with her claiming a fifth win in seven meetings.

A year out from the next Winter Olympics, Cox is proving the competitor to beat after another outstanding display in Pyeongchang, South Korea, which will host the Games.

The 22-year-old was the top qualifier and consolidated her position in the final, scoring 81.66 points to outperform Canadian pair Justine Dufour-Lapointe (78.35) and Andi Naude (78.16).

Before the 2016-17 season, Cox had only secured three podium finishes, all bronze. She is now the frontrunner to claim the season's overall women's moguls title.

"To be successful consistently you have to be really good at the basics and fundamentals and the coaches have really drilled it in to me,” she said.

"That takes time and that takes patience. It's not something you can learn overnight. I have been in the World Cup since 2010 now and it has taken that amount of time.”

Later in Feldberg, Germany, fellow Aussie Belle Brockhoff finished second in the snowboard cross to maintain her overall lead in the title standings.
