NSWIS athlete Britteny Cox has signalled her intentions for a berth on the Australian Winter Olympic team by winning moguls bronze at a world cup meet in the USA.

Cox finished behind reigning Olympic champion Hannah Kearney and two-time world championship medallist Nikola Sudova in the women’s freestyle moguls event, winning the second world cup bronze medal of her burgeoning career.

The bronze medal saw Cox’s world ranking rise to fifth, while also assuring the 18-year-old has met the qualification standard for the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games.

Fellow NSWIS athletes Taylah O’Neill and Nicole Parks finished 21st and 22nd respectively, while Matt Graham finished 25th in the men’s freestyle moguls event.
