The youngest of three moguls skiing sisters who all competed at Sochi 2014, Justine Dufour-Lapointe has recently been the most successful of the trio. While making her Olympic debut in Sochi, Dufour-Lapointe made history with older sister Chloé when they finished 1-2, becoming just the third set of sisters to ever win gold and silver in the same Winter Olympic event.
In 2013 Dufour-Lapointe won moguls bronze in her world championship debut and finished second in the World Cup moguls standings for the second straight season.
Dufour-Lapointe made her World Cup debut in December 2010 and won dual moguls bronze in just her second World Cup start. She reached her first World Cup moguls podium in January 2012 and recorded her first World Cup moguls victory in January 2013.
