Kate had a great weekend.

Kate earned a spot on the US National World Cup Team when she won the final qualification race held at Whistler in Bristish Columbia, Canada, this last weekend. After four qualification races held at Lake Placid, Park City and Whistler, Kate had the highest point total of all the competitors. There are five women who will be representing the United States in the World Cup Races. Erin Hamlin, Jukia Clukey, Kate Hansen, Megan Sweeney and Emily Sweeney (yes, sisters - amazing) have all been selected to be members of the team.

World Cup competition begins this next week in Calgary, Canada. The following week she will be in Igls, Austria (right next to Innsbruck). Then the team will go to Altenberg, Germany and the final World Cup Race of 2009 will be held in Lillehammer, Norway. After those four races, the U.S. Olympic Team will be selected according to the performance in the World Cup Races. Three women will be selected.
