Justine wins gold, Chloé silver, Dufour-Lapointe sisters go 1-2 in ladies’ moguls

By Callum Ng

Canada’s moguls powerhouse family gave the country two medals, a gold and silver, to finish day one at the Sochi Games.

Justine Dufour-Lapointe was all-in on her final run, scoring 22.44 for the gold while her older sister Chloé Dufour-Lapointe registered 21.66 for the silver.

While Chloé qualified ahead of her younger sister in both the first and second finals, it was Justine who won the day. Oldest sister Maxime finished in 12th spot, missing the third final.

It is the seventh time in Olympic Winter Games history that siblings have gone 1-2. Canada has never had sisters on the podium at a Winter Games. In addition to Mark McMorris’ bronze medal, the three podiums are the most-ever for Canada on day one of the Olympic Winter Games.
