Kingsbury on Top of the World

The most dominant mogulist on the FIS tour over the last two years proved himself once again today when 2012 Crystal Globe winner Mikael Kingsbury (Deux-Montagnes, QC) soared to a first place finish at the 2013 World Championships in Voss, Norway.

The win is a two-spot improvement for Kingsbury who finished in third place two years ago at the 2011 World Championships in Deer Valley.

“I have been waiting a while for this and dreaming about the day that I would earn the World Championship title,” said Kingsbury. “I worked hard all summer to get to this day and I’m very happy. When I woke up this morning I was in a World Championship mood. I felt perfect. My body was perfect, so I knew it could be today.”

It was a good day overall for the Canadian Freestyle Association with 2010 Olympic champion Alex Bilodeau (Rosemere, QC) finishing right behind Kingsbury in second place and teammate Justine Dufour-Lapointe (Montreal, QC) capturing bronze for the women. The medals secure provisional spots for all three athletes to be named to the 2014 Sochi Olympic team.

“It was not easy,”  said Dufour-Lapointe. “And I’m so happy about my medal today, but in fact it’s not the medal so much as the path that I took to get it. The path was tough but I made it.”
All three athletes will be competing on Thursday in the dual moguls qualifications with the finals on tap for Friday.
