Canada's Kingsbury wins 5th straight World Cup moguls title
Mikael Kingsbury and Hannah Kearney continued their dominance of the FIS Freestyle World Cup season on Saturday at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
Kingsbury, of Deux-Montagnes, Que., raced to his fifth straight World Cup win in the men's moguls competition.
"Right now my skiing is going so great," said Kingsbury, who finished first with a score of 24.30 ahead of Americans Jeremy Cota (23.94) and Sho Kashima (5.23). "I don't miss any runs, so I want to continue like that all season."
Meanwhile Kearney, the American Olympic champion, has now won 12 straight women's moguls events dating back to last season.
"Today I felt like I was very consistently strong and that's good news moving forward for the rest of the season," said Kearney, who won with a score of 24.82 to beat out Montreal's Justine Dufour-Lapointe (23.11) and fellow American KC Oakley (22.06).
Kingsbury earned a berth in the men's super final on Saturday afternoon along with Cota, Kashima and Japan's Sho Endo, who crashed in the midsection of the course and lost one of his skis. Although he put his ski back on and finished the run, Endo wasn't awarded a score because he took too much time.
