BARWON Heads moguls skier Jakara Anthony’s record-breaking season continued in stellar style over last weekend.

Anthony rode to her 12th and 13th season wins of the FIS World Cup at the Kazakhstan Winter Resort on Saturday and Sunday, setting a new all-time season record for the Aussie Winter Olympian.


Jakara Anthony has broken the all-time FIS World Cup record for wins in a season with 13.


The already crowned World Cup overall champion capped off a perfect weekend by winning the Big Final of the dual moguls in Almaty on Saturday to extend her new all-time record to 13 gold medals.

“Yeah, it’s pretty crazy,” she said smiling after the 21st World Cup win of her glittering career on the ‘Yuka G” course at Almaty’s Shymbulak Mountain Resort.

“We were joking last night – well, my coach Pete (McNeil) was – that we’ve still got to come out here today and break another record… my one from yesterday [surpassing American Hannah Kearney’s best-ever season of 12 wins].

“But in all seriousness, we were just going out there today and working on the things that I was kind of missing yesterday, and getting used to switching between lines, that’s always a hard thing to adjust to on duals day.”

Anthony’s performances over the 2023-24 has ensured Anthony will take home all three crystal globes: overall moguls champion, singles format discipline winner, and dual moguls discipline winner.

The 25-year-old’s is officially the greatest season ever by any moguls skier in history, but it is not over yet, with Anthony still to compete in one more event – the season-ending dual moguls in Valmalenco, Italy, this weekend.

Anthony leads American Jaelin Kauf in the season’s dual moguls standings by a massive 176 points heading into the final event of the season.
