Brooke Raboutou reps Team USA atop climbing World Cup podium in Salt Lake City

It was the first World Cup podium finish for Raboutou, who will represent the United States women in the Olympics this summer alongside Salt Lake City’s Kyra Condie.

It wasn’t the first time the United States has put two women on the podium, but it hasn’t happened often. The first time was in 1992 when Robyn Erbesfield won a Word Cup lead event in Zurich and Lynn Hill took third. That year a Frenchwoman took second, just as France’s Oriane Bertone did Saturday.
