Justine, Chloé and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe, a trio of Olympic skiers who also happen to be sisters, stopped by the CBC Daybreak studio to chat with sports reporter Andie Bennett.

They spoke about Justine's gold-medal win at the Freestyle World Championships last weekend, the difficulty in getting sponsors for athletes in the young sport of freestyle skiing and their reaction to "the twirl" Quebec tennis star Eugenie Bouchard was asked to perform after a win at the Australia Open.
