Mikael Kingsbury has extended his remarkable podium streak to 17 consecutive medals after he captured gold yesterday with a personal best score of 27.05 at the World Cup in Lake Placid, New York. The 20-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, QC continues to hold on to the FIS points lead for men’s moguls after his victory.

“I’m super stoked, it’s awesome,” said Kingsbury. “It shows I’m working in the right direction. For sure there are still a lot of things to improve, but for today I managed well mentally.”

The win had extra value for Kingsbury as the event was one of five targeted competitions in which a podium finish helps toward an athlete’s eligibility for an early nomination to the Olympic team for Sochi 2014.

“It’s my first Olympic qualification event and I started with a win,” said Kingsbury.

Bobsleigh silver in Austria

Olympic gold medallist from 2010 Kaillie Humphries and brakeman Chelsea Valois captured silver in Igls, Austria for their eighth consecutive medal together in Bobsleigh. Humphries also extended her world record podium streak to 11 straight and has nine victories in her last 11 starts. The duo clocked a two-run time of 1:48.66 – just .01 seconds from gold.

“It is frustrating when you lose by that close, but I made a mistake and that cost me time,” said Humphries, who has all but officially locked up the overall World Cup title. “The positive is I have never done well here. I have come third, but last year was ninth so it can go either way.”
