Canada's Mikaël Kingsbury won the dual moguls final at a World Cup event in Idre Fjäll, Sweden, on Sunday, a day after taking silver in moguls.

The 30-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, Que., captured the gold medal by scoring 19.00 in the final, beating Swedish freestyler Filip Gravenfors, who posted a score of 16.00.

The Swede beat Kingsbury to the finish line, but the judges awarded the Canadian more points.

"[Gravenfors is] really fast. Filip really challenged me. I did well in the middle section, and at one point I couldn't see him beside me. I really respect what he did," Kingsbury said in a release. "It was a bit dicey at times because you pick up a lot of speed in the middle, but kudos to Filip, he's really fast.

"I'm glad to have earned the yellow jersey as the winner of this event. Things are going well so far...two first-place finishes and one second."
