Kingsbury, Marquis 1-2 for Canada in moguls
Canadians Mikael Kingsbury and Philippe Marquis finished 1-2 in men's moguls on Sunday at the freestyle skiing World Cup in China.
Kingsbury, from Deux-Montagnes, Que., took gold with a score of 26.53.
"I just focused on the win," said Kingsbury. "I just focused on skiing my run the best that I can with the conditions and ended up right where I wanted to be and I am super stoked about that."
Quebec City's Marquis was tied with a score of 25.34, the same as Kazakhstan's Dmitriy Reiherd.
Marc-Antonie Gagnon (24.56) of Terrebonne, Que., was fourth, while Eddie Hicks (23.86) of Langley, B.C. was seventh. Cedric Rochon (21.04) of St. Sauveur, Que., was ninth.
"Pretty good for all the Canadian boys because we almost swept the podium," said Marquis. "I think that's one of our best events of the year, for the men's side.
"That's a good push, that's a cool streak we're having here."
In the women's event, Montreal's Justine Dufour-Lapointe won silver with 25.39 points. She finished behind American Hannah Kearney by just 0.3 points.
"I'm pretty happy with this score," said Dufour-Lapointe. "It was pretty intense because during my qualification I was feeling a bit sick with a fever.
"I think I ate something that was off and it was a little bit sketchy at the start."
Kazakhstan's Yulia Galysheva (25.33) was third, while Dufour-Lapointe's sister Chloe was fourth with 24.70. Quebec City's Audrey Robichaud (24.30) was fifth.
