The Canadian mogul team continued what has been a stellar season so far, with Kingsbury and  Olympic Champion Alex Bilodeau taking gold and silver with respective scores of 24.25 and 24.16. Russia’s Alexandr Smyshlyaev was third at 23.53.

Eighteen-year-old Kingsbury, who currently sits in second place in the FIS World Cup standings, said, “It was awesome for the little snow and I did exactly what I wanted.  I skied fast, not the fastest, but pretty fast with my two jumps, so I’m super happy.”

Bilodeau was full of admiration for his younger teammate, saying, “Mikael’s not an up-and-comer any more, he’s here to stay.  He’s one of the leaders in the world and, he’s going to stick for at least eight years. It’s going to be his first Olympics probably in Sochi, and then probably the others. We probably have an Olympic champion in our back pocket and Canada doesn’t even know about it yet.”
