After their spectacular Gold-Silver win, Jian catches up with Canada's mogul-dominating sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe. They share what they were thinking during their big runs, how it feels to be in the international spotlight, and why they feel their older sister Maxime shares in the honour.

"I respect my sister more than anything in my life," says Justine, adding that mutual support has always been more important than rivalry between the sisters. The Dufour-Lapointe sisters are a trio, they both insist.

Plus, hear what happened when one sister's boot clip broke mere moments before her run.
