Canada rule supreme at Calgary freestyles

Monday, February 01 2016 by SNTV
  • Canadian mogul skiers Mikael Kingsbury and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe dominated in Calgary in the FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup on Saturday (30 January).

    Known as one of the toughest mogul tracks on the circuity, the freestyle skiing World Cup came to the Olympic Park in Calgary on Saturday.

    Sho Endo was looking to break up the Canadian dominance of this season's moguls podiums.

    The man from Japan already had one podium finish at the season opener in Finland.

    And again here, Endo would clinch a bronze medal finish.

    It was indeed the Canadians who ruled supreme in the men's category.

    The man who sat in second in the overall standings, Philippe Marquis, would take that exact position here at his home event.

    World number one Mikael Kingsbury continued his dominance in the men's freestyle skiing field after claiming top spot.

    Kingsbury nailed a back double full on his first jump and cork 1080 on his second jump to see off Canadian compatriot Marquis.

    Over in the women's Canada taking 1-2-3 in the women's event.

    One week ago the Dufour-Lapointe sisters made history after sweeping the podium in Val Saint-Come - the first time three sisters had done so.

    This time round, Chloe once again took gold ahead of sister Justine with another Canadian Amdi Naude claiming bronze.

    Meanwhile, Maxime Dufour-Lapointe failed to build on her bronze in Quebec last week, finishing in sixth place.

    The Moguls move south of the border to Deer Valley in the United States starting Saturday.
