MINSK, Belarus (AP) -- Kiley McKinnon and Mac Bohonnon gave the United States its first ever World Cup title double in aerials skiing Sunday.

McKinnon becomes the first U.S. woman to win the World Cup since 1998, while Bohonnon is the first American men's winner since 2005.

McKinnon secured her title with second place at the final round in Minsk, Belarus, as fellow American Ashley Caldwell took the event win, scoring 99.63 points with a back full-full-full. Russia's Veronika Korsunova was third.

Bohonnon also finished his season with second place as Ukraine's Oleksandr Abramenko won the Minsk round with a 122.62-point score. Denis Osipau of Belarus was third.

Both McKinnon and Bohonnon were helped in their title push when top Chinese skiers opted to skip the final two World Cup rounds.
