Justine Dufour-Lapointe and Alex Bilodeau rule the Lake Placid moguls podium
With just over three weeks until the moguls events at Sochi 2014, Canada is showing good form.
19-year-old Justine Dufour-Lapointe won women’s gold today at the Lake Placid freestyle ski World Cup, while Olympic Champion Alex Bilodeau won the men’s event.
The two victories add to a slew of World Cup medals for Canada in 2014. Since the new year, the team has combined for 14 World Cup podium finishes, including six gold.
Today it was Bilodeau who got the better of his chief rival, another Canadian, Mikaël Kingsbury who was sixth. The pair are still 1-2 in World Cup standings.
For Dufour-Lapointe, it is her second victory of 2014 as she chases the United State’s Hannah Kearney in the standings. Behind World Cup overall leader Kearney, there are three Dufour-Lapointe sisters, Justine the youngest, then Maxime and Chloé.
The next event is at Val St. Come, here in Canada.
