The middle link of the three mogul-skiing Dufour-Lapointe sisters, Chloe Dufour-Lapointe has emerged over the past several seasons as one of the most consistent and consistently successful skiers on the World Cup moguls tour.
Chloé was the first of the three to compete at the Olympic Winter Games, finishing fifth as an 18-year-old at Vancouver 2010.
Four years later she would make a significant Olympic leap forward, jumping onto the podium at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games in second, taking the silver medal and joining her younger, gold medal-winning sister Justine on the podium. It was just the third time a pair of sisters finished 1-2 in the same Winter Olympic event.
Earlier in her career, Dufour-Lapointe was a double medallist at the 2007 World Junior Championships, winning gold in dual moguls and bronze in moguls when she was just 15. She made her World Cup debut in December of that year, just after her 16th birthday. She went on to earn the 2007-08 FIS World Cup Rookie of the Year on the strength of six top-10 finishes. In March 2009 she reached her first World Cup podium.
Having grown up idolizing two-time Olympic champion Jenn Heil, Dufour-Lapointe had the honour of racing directly against Heil in her final world championship appearance in 2011. Heil won the final dual moguls showdown, but that gave Dufour-Lapointe the silver, her first world championship medal. Two years later Dufour-Lapointe moved to the top of the podium, winning the dual moguls at the 2013 World Championships.
Chloe finished the 2014/15 World Cup in third overall, behind only Justine and US legend Hannah Kearney. With Kearney now retired, it's looking like the Dufour-Lapointes will be gearing up for a Sochi repeat on top of the World Cup standings in 2015/16.
