Perrine Laffont ends her season with another parallel victory

The Frenchwoman won gold on the Kazakh tracks of Almaty this Saturday.

Guaranteed to win the big crystal globe, Perrine Laffont ended her 2022/23 season with a 30th victory in the Mogul Skiing World Cup, dominating the American Jaelin Kauf in the final, on the Kazakh slopes of Almaty.

In the final, Perrine Laffont got the better of Jaelin Kauf (21-14), vice-world champion in singles and in parallel behind Laffont two weeks ago in Bakuriani (Georgia). Another American, Olivia Giacco, took third place.

With two gold medals at the World Championships in singles and in parallel, four World Cup victories, eleven podiums out of twelve races this winter, the big globe in the general classification and the small globe in parallel moguls, Perrine Laffont has resumed her domination of the discipline, a year after its disappointing fourth place at the Olympic Games-2022 in Zhangjiakou (China).

«I’m just happy that the season is over, it’s been hard and complicated. It’s great to finish with two wins. I also have my two globes with me, I’m so happy“commented the 24-year-old Pyrenean.

He will have missed only 50 points to seize the small globe of single moguls, returned to the Australian Jakara Anthony, reigning Olympic champion in singles (the parallel will make its appearance on the Olympic program in 2026 in Milan-Cortina).

«A huge thank you to all my staff, because we are doing a great job this seasonAdded the skier from Monts d’Olmes, in the Ariège Pyrenees, who left with new staff for this post-Olympic season.
