Former two-time overall men's champion Trace Worthington of Park City, Utah was fourth in aerials on Saturday, enabling him to capture the combined event as the first weekend of the World Cup freestyle skiing season concluded.

It was the 25th World Cup victory for Worthington, 25, who won the men's overall title in 1992 and again in '93 but was hobbled last season by shoulder and knee injuries. He underwent surgery last spring and a summer of aggressive rehabilitation to prepare for this season.
