Canada cleans up at Superbowl of mogul events

By Callum Ng

Let’s just say Canada’s moguls program has depth. The nation won all but one of the possible medals at the Superbowl of mogul events in Deer Valley, Utah.

It was a Quebec sweep on the men’s side led by Mikaël Kingsbury of Deux Montagnes, followed by Rosemère’s Alex Bilodeau and Terrebonne’s Marc-Antoine Gagnon.

Kingsbury won with a score of 26.39 in front of the circuit’s most plentiful crowds and cameras. He was gracious after the event, “This is my favourite course. To win here, you need to be technically strong. But, my favourite part of tonight was being on the podium with my friends and teammates.”

While American Hannah Kearney triumphed in front of a home crowd, two of Montreal’s Dufour-Lapointe sisters rounded out the podium. 2010 Olympian Chloé was second and Justine third. Last week in Calgary it was the same three on the podium, but Justine who edged Kearney for gold.

“I love Deer Valley,” Chloé told media after the event, “I love the night setting. It’s a tough course, but it’s the same for everybody. Tonight I pushed myself in speed and height. But it is not my limit. I’m on my way to Sochi and I plan on going higher and faster.” Of note, Maxime Dufour-Lapointe was fifth.
