Kingsbury of Canada wins second gold medal in 2 days


Canada’s Mikael Kingsbury won a gold medal Saturday for his second World Cup crown in as many days.

It was also the 70th career World Cup title for the reigning Olympic champion from Deux-Montagnes, Que.

“It’s good to have a beautiful 70th win at home, back,” he said with a laugh.

Kingsbury, who has won five gold medals this season, finished first with 85.59 points. Sweden’s Walter Wallberg came in second (82.66) and Japan’s Ikuma Horishima took bronze (78.78) in repeating the order on Friday.

“I like my skiing, I think I skied a little better than yesterday,” said Kingsbury, who also won the 99th World Cup podium in his career. “I don’t score a lot but I’m happier with my skiing.”

Brenden Kelly of Pemberton, BC, came in 10th.

Perrine Laffont of France won the women’s competition. Australia’s Jakera Anthony won silver and Japan’s Anri Kawamura won bronze.

Chloe Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal is the top Canadian in eighth place.

COVID-19 protocols in the province of Quebec prevented fans from attending the event.
