Canadian Mikael Kingsbury became world champion in mogul skiing for the seventh time in his career on Saturday afternoon in Bakuriani (Georgia), while Frenchwoman Perrine Laffont won her fourth planetary title. With a move to 89.82 points in the final, Mikael Kinsbury edged out Australian Matt Graham (88.90) and Swedish Olympic champion Walter Wallberg (88.52).
At the world championships, the 30-year-old Canadian has been undefeated since 2019, capturing the single moguls and dual moguls titles in Deer Valley four years ago and Almaty two years ago. In seven editions of the Worlds, he has climbed all the podiums (12). Sunday, he will be able to achieve a “triple double” since the parallel mogul event, which will be Olympic from 2026 in Milan-Cortina, is on the program in Bakuriani, in the Georgian Little Caucasus.
