Mikael Kingsbury And Perrine Laffont Extend Winning Streak
The FIS Freestyle World Cup event at Winsport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary went down in style on Saturday, with Canada’s Mikael Kingsbury reaching for his 60th World Cup victory, while France’s Perrine Laffont extended her winning streak to five competitions.
It was the 11th time that the FIS Freestyle Ski Moguls World Cup was back in action in Calgary at the venue with one of the richest history of freestyle skiing, where moguls made its Olympic debut back in 1988.
The weather conditions on Saturday were far from perfect, with strong wind gusts rolling in and out through Fitz's Freefall course. And despite causing a minor delay in the competition programme, Mother Nature decided to finally play along with the organisers, allowing world’s best athletes to showcase their fastest skiing and most technical air tricks.
