Updated:
VOSS, Norway (AP) _ Jeremy Bloom's six-race winning streak ended Saturday when Finland's Mikko Ronkainen captured the World Cup moguls finale.

Bloom, who already had clinched the moguls title, was second. His next big meet is the world freestyle championships in Finland from March 16-20.

The women's event was won by Japan's Aiko Uemura. She was followed by Margarita Marbler of Austria and Nikola Sudova of the Czech Republic.

Ronkainen, winless in 11 previous races this season, finished with 25.87 points. Bloom was second at 25.39 and Fredrik Fortkord of Sweden finished third at 25.31.

Bloom led the final moguls standings with 820 points, one of five American men among the top 10. Bloom had to give up college football at Colorado because of his ski endorsements.

Dale Begg-Smith of Australia was second at 478, followed by Nathan Roberts of the United States (444) and Ronkainen (430). Begg-Smith was fifth Saturday and Roberts was 33rd.

Among the women, Uemura won with 25.15 points while Marbler had 24.81 and Sudova 24.77.

Canada's Jennifer Heil, who finished fourth, won the overall title with 780 points. Norway's Kari Traa was runner-up at 571 and Marbler was third at 568. Traa fell and finished 12th and last Saturday before her home fans.
