Canada has a history of producing strong moguls’ athletes. From Alexandre Bilodeau’s performance in Vancouver to bring Canada its first ever Olympic gold medal on home soil, to the emergence of the Dufour-Lapointe sisters and Mikael Kingsbury, there has been no shortage of great performances by Canadian moguls athletes.
The momentum from those games in 2010 hasn’t stopped, and the Canadian moguls’ team has continued the strong performance into the 2014-2015 season.
And what a season it has been so far! After just two months of competition they have won an incredible 16 medals on the world cup circuit, seven of which have been gold. Recent success at the World Championships in Kreischberg, Austria was highlighted by a sweep of the men’s dual moguls podium, part of a six-medal performance in Austria.
When the team heads to Lake Placid this Thursday for a FIS world cup competition it will mark the first time they have competed on this side of the Atlantic since the Deer Valley events in early January. If their track record is any indication this year, make sure to watch out for Mikael, Philippe, Justine, Chloe and the rest of the moguls’ team as they try to add more hardware to the collection. Go Canada Go!
