Associated Press

INAWASHIRO, Japan Japan's Aiko Uemura has won a freestyle skiing world cup moguls event to claim her first title of the season.

Uemura, who was fourth last month at the Vancouver Olympics, scored 23.00 points to edge Olympic silver medalist Jennifer Heil of Canada with 22.73 on Sunday.

American Shannon Bahrke, who took bronze in Vancouver, was third with 22.20.

Heil leads the overall moguls standings with 585 points.

Poor visibility forced the cancellation of the men's and dual moguls events.
