AFP_LogoThe Association of Freeskiing Professionals has announced the Kaya Turski has earned the title of 2011/2012 Women’s Slopestyle World Champion. Over the course of the season Kaya accumulated 5,700 points and won five Platinum level events in a row to take the title. This is Kaya’s fourth straight season being named Women’s Slopestyle World Champion.

“So excited and proud to be honored the top spot in the AFP Women’s Slopestyle ranking,” said Kaya. “It’s amazing to be part of the sport at such a progressive time and so proud of all the girls who have come so far.”

Kaya was an unbeatable force throughout the entire season. Her collection of first place titles includes Winter X Games, X Games Europe, Mammoth Grand Prix, and both stops at the Winter Dew Tour — where she took home the Dew Cup.

Kaya had secured her World ranking long before the AFP World Championships took place, however other athletes battled neck and neck for placement to the very end.  Anna Segal managed to jump from 5th place to 2nd in the World rankings after a stellar slopestyle performance during the weekend’s competitions. She ended up bumping Devin Logan from 2nd place into 3rd. Emilia Wint was able to hold on to her 4th place position, while Dara Howell was knocked into 5th.

The AFP is fortunate to have such amazing female athletes representing the sport. All the women skied fantastic runs and have a great deal to be proud of after an amazing season of tight competition.
