Connecticut native Kiley McKinnon has only been competing in aerials for a few years, but she has already racked up an impressive list of accomplishments. After being introduced to aerials by a friend, McKinnon showed early promise, finishing fifth in her very first competition, which happened to be 2011 U.S. National Championships.
Early on in the 2012 season, McKinnon followed up her debut success by landing a victory in just her second NorAm competition ever. Four wins later, McKinnon wrapped up the overall NorAm title in her first year on the tour. A silver medal at the 2012 U.S. Championships and a bronze at the FIS Junior World Championships capped her stellar season.
The 2013 season followed suit with four top-ten World Cup results and a silver at U.S. Championships to cap off her career-best season. Winter 2014 was a recovery year for McKinnon after she suffered a shoulder injury halfway through the season. But McKinnon came back in 2015 better than ever, scoring her first world cup podium at the season opener in Beijing. She never looked back, landing on the podium four more times and jumping to a silver medal at the 2015 FIS Freestyle Ski World Championships. McKinnon's consisten jumping allowed her to take home the World Cup overall title at the end of the season. She will look to retain the title in 2016.
