Canadians Find Continued Success in Domestic Moguls World Cup

Jan. 29, 2017
FIS WORLD CUP

Calgary, Alberta, January 28, 2017 – The Canadian moguls team continues to find success at domestic World Cups. The team clinched another three medals in Calgary. Justine Dufour-Lapointe, Chloé Dufour-Lapointe and Mikael Kingsbury all walked away with hardware on home soil.

Mikael Kingsbury has had tremendous success in Calgary, where he has been champion for the past six years. Today, Mikael had a great day of skiing, but unfortunately wasn’t able to extend the streak to a seventh year. Mikael will look forward to the next World Cup in Deer Valley to reclaim his position atop the podium.

‘‘ I knew it was a good run….I’d been having trouble on my 1080 during my final and super final runs. I still managed to land them all, but I knew I didn’t give everything to the course today… It’s not by best performance here in Calgary, but I’ll take it. It’s another podium, and that’s awesome’’

said silver medallist Mikael Kingsbury,

Teammate Justine Dufour-Lapointe also finished in second place, followed by her sister Chloé in third. The Dufour-Lapointe sisters continue to build their consistency on the women’s circuit as they both claim their second consecutive podium finish of the 2017 season.

‘‘I’m so, so happy about my run! I had to focus on getting a big three sixty up top. I managed to do that, ski well, clean, and fast while hitting a really awesome bottom air. I did my job and I’m really proud. I don’t think I could have done any better today. ’’

said silver medallist Justine Dufour-Lapointe.

The Canadian Moguls team is back in action in Deer Valley in early February. They will continue to build on this weekend’s success. Their deep talent pool is a force to be reckoned with.
