Canadian Mikael Kingsbury finally realises Olympic dream in moguls

Canada's Mikaël Kingsbury has won gold in men's moguls, topping Matt Graham of Australia and Japan's Daichi Hara.

Since winning the silver medal four years ago, the 25-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, Que., has dominated the moguls circuit.

However, a score of 86.63 ensured the six-time World Cup victor stormed to first place ahead of Australia's Matt Graham, who beat Japan's Daichi Hara to second.

Kingsbury, the World Cup leader and Sochi Games silver medallist, was the top qualifier after scoring 86.07 points Friday.

The second qualifying round starts on Monday at 5:30 a.m. ET, with the first of three final sessions beginning at 7 a.m. ET.

It was the fifth medal for Team Canada in a 48-hour span on the mountains.

Anything other than a win for Kingsbury would be a surprise, such is his consistency, and the Olympic gold medal is the one major honour that is missing from his collection.

Where he was going, it turns out, was to the top of the podium.
