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, only to follow that up with an incredible 2015/16 season that saw her take six podiums on her way to claiming the season's moguls crystal globe, just ahead of her sister Justine.
While 2016/17 was something of an off-season for Dufour-Lapointe, with just two podiums on the year and an overall ranking of fifth, you can rest assured that the 26-year-old will be back on her game for 2017/18 and ready to push for a medal come time for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Korea.
