Another strong member of the incredible Chinese aerials team, Qi Guangpu showed in 2012-13 that he may be hitting his peak at just the right time as we head towards the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.
While Guangpu has been a solid competitor on the World Cup circuit since the 2006-06 when he joined the tour at only 16 years of age, he began to hit his stride in late 2009, and has put together 12 podium performances and four victories since that time.
It was his late-season heroics in the 2012-13 season that elevated him to the next level, however, and his big-money performances in big-time events have placed him on par with teammate Jia Zongyang on the favorites list for the upcoming Games.
With a win at the Olympic test event in February 2013 and a win at the FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships in Voss, NOR that March, Guangpu has proven himself one of the aerial world's elite, and a strong contender to take gold in 2014.
