COC Bio-Freestyle Skiing-Kingsbury%2c MikaelMikaël Kingsbury was just a 17 year old spectator at Vancouver 2010 when Alex Bilodeau made history by winning the first-ever Canadian Olympic gold medal on home soil. Four years later he shared the podium with Bilodeau at Sochi 2014, winning the silver medal in his Olympic debut.

Kingsbury made his World Cup debut in January 2010 and was named that season‘s FIS World Cup Rookie of the Year.  He earned his first World Cup victory in December 2010 when he was still just 18.  At his first FIS World Championships in 2011 he was a double medallist, winning bronze in moguls and silver in the non-Olympic dual moguls event, finishing one spot behind Bilodeau in both.

While Bilodeau took a break from competition in 2011-12, Kingsbury became the king of all freestyle skiers, winning the first of his three straight Crystal Globes as the overall World Cup champion.  Not yet 20, he was the youngest male moguls skier to ever win a Crystal Globe.  His remarkable season included a record 13 World Cup medals (eight gold, four silver, one bronze) as he reached the podium in every event he entered.  That included a record-tying string of six straight moguls wins.

Kingsbury’s podium streak continued in 2012-13 as he won the first five World Cup moguls events he entered, including the Sochi test event.  He also stood atop the podium at the 2013 FIS World Championships, beating Bilodeau for gold in the moguls.  He added a silver medal in the dual moguls.

Getting Into Sport: Started skiing at age four… When he was eight he joined a freestyle club at Mont Saint-Sauveur… A year earlier he had seen the club’s moguls team and wanted to ski with them… When skiing with his parents he was always going over bumps between trees and hitting jumps… Outside Interests: Enjoys playing hockey and golf, as well as surfing and skateboarding…  Studying human sciences at cégep by distance… Supports the Fondation Drapeau-Deschambault… Odds and Ends: Superstitions: wears the same brand of boxers at every competition and has a t-shirt that has become his lucky shirt which reads “It’s good to be the king”… Has worn it since reaching it first World Cup podium in 2010… Loves the Montreal Canadiens but his favourite player is Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks… Had his Olympic dream sparked while watching the 2002 Olympic men’s moguls competition… Favourite Olympic memories are Alex Bilodeau’s gold medal and the men’s gold medal hockey game at Vancouver 2010… Always wears his Livestrong bracelet… Favourite motto: Impossible is nothing… Likens Jean-Luc Brassard’s gold medal run at Lillehammer 1994 to one of the greatest goals in hockey…
