CC Economics Major Competes in Sochi
Eliza Outtrim ’11 made a strong showing in her first Olympics, finishing sixth in the women's moguls event. Outtrim, from Hamden, Conn., earned a degree in economics from Colorado College. She competed Saturday in the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.
After qualifying for the finals in fourth place, Outtrim was in a good position to advance. In the first round of the finals, Outtrim finished second, joining 11 other skiers to move on to the next round of competition. Outtrim’s next run was good enough for fifth place. The top six skiers earned a spot in the medal round.
Outtrim skied second in the final run, but the 19.37 score given by the judges was her lowest score of the competition.
Canadian Justine Doufour-Lapointe won the Olympic gold medal, while her sister Chloe Doufour-Lapointe took silver. American Hannah Kearney, the reigning Olympic moguls champion, won the bronze.
