Madarao, Japan (Feb. 23) USST – Defending World Cup champion Jeremy Bloom (Loveland, CO) has competed in only four World Cup events this winter (plus the World Championships), but he’s made things interesting.

Sunday, he won his second contest of the season, edging teammate – and roommate – Travis Cabral (South Lake Tahoe, CA) as U.S. men took five of the top 10 places. In the women’s event, with Austrian Margarita Marbler winning and Shannon Bahrke (Tahoe City, CA) second, four U.S. women were in the top 10.

Bloom, who won the world dual moguls gold medal and silver in the moguls event at the 2003 World Championships three weeks ago at Utah’s Deer Valley, sat out a competition a week ago because of a sore knee. But he came back blazing Sunday to win with 28.00 points. He nad Cabral have split the last four World Cup moguls events.

Cabral, who’s won three times this winter, was runnerup at 27.83 and Luke Westerlund (Breckenridge, CO) made it three Americans in the top four.

Marbler, who took the opening event of the season in Tignes, France, received 26.86 points from the judges while Bahrke preserved her World Cup lead in second place at 26.35. World and Olympic – and defending World Cup – champ Kari Traa of Norway was third; she and Bahrke have the same points but Bahrke holds the World Cup lead – with one contest remaining – on a tiebreaker formula.
