After taking three medals in yesterday's moguls event, the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team has stepped it up one more time bringing home four out of six dual moguls medals at the FIS Junior World Championships in Chiesa in Valmalenco, Italy.

On the women's side, yesterday's fifth ranked skier and 2012 DM champion Ali Kariotis took Gold leading an US American podium sweep on the women's side with Morgan Schild and Keaton McCargo rounding out the podium as second and third respectively.

Schild and Keaton thus earned their second neck bling bling within two days each; but Keaton kept on an impressive podium streak at JWCh.

Last season, she won both moguls events, this time, she got along well again with the slope in Palu Park claiming another title and one Silver.

On the men's side, Thomas Rowley (USA) added Silver to his belt after the 19-year-old from Telluride lost an exciting men's final of the seventh ever Junior Worlds against Benjamin Cavet.

The Frenchman thus celebrated a perfect revenge for yesterday's close loss in the finals when he was edged off to the runner-up position by his US American rival.

As a result, both athletes became the most successful moguls skiers of the 2014 FIS Junior World Championships in Valmalenco with one Gold and one Silver each.
