Four Canadians have moved on to the finals for the freestyle skiing women’s moguls.
The top 10 scores in the qualifying round go directly to Saturday’s finals. Team Canada made a strong showing, and the chances of medalling in this event are good.
-Chloe Dufour-Lapointe finished second.
-Justine Dufour-Lapointe finished third.
-Maxime Dufour-Lapointe finished eighth.
-Audrey Robichaud finished ninth.
Canada had the highest number of qualifiers in this event. Hopes are high for Canada’s freestyle ski team — the second largest team of Canadian athletes in Sochi.
It is rare to have three siblings competing at the olympic level in the same event. The Dufour-Lapointe sisters are medal favourites, especially Chloe and Justine. Justine was ranked second in the world going into today’s event.
