In the period between his elite debut in 2010 and 2018, Canadian moguls specialist Mikael Kingsbury set a host of records in the World Cup, winning the overall title seven times in a row and scoring 49 wins and 73 podium finishes in 90 starts. He then capped it all by fulfilling his dream of winning Olympic gold at PyeongChang 2018
Learning to ski on the slopes of Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains seems to be a fool-proof formula for Olympic success. The Canadian province is home to a long line of freestyle champions, among them Jean-Luc Brassard, Olympic mogul champion at Lillehammer 1994; Alexandre Bilodeau, two-time Olympic champion at Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014; and the Dufour-Lapointe sisters, Justine and Chloe, who scored a one-two at Sochi 2014.
Hailing from Deux-Montagnes, Kingsbury has proved a more than worthy addition to that list. A serial record breaker on the FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup circuit, he won moguls silver at Sochi 2014 and then went one better in the event at PyeongChang 2018.
