A hugely successful weekend of back-to-back competitions in Almaty wrapped up on Saturday, where dual moguls event closed out another breathtaking season of FIS Freestyle Ski Moguls World Cup action. There, Perrine Laffont (FRA) and Mikael Kingsbury (CAN) repeated their performances from Friday and went all-out for top spot in respective women’s and men’ competitions.
After taking a huge win on Friday, Laffont kept her momentum going on Saturday and once again impressed with some flawless skiing throughout the day, keeping things clean in the bumps while throwing down some progressive tricks on the jumps. Her path to victory was no easy one, however, as she faced some tough match-ups against some very talented mogul skiers, including Li Ruilin (CHN), Rino Yanagimoto (JPN) and Alli Macuga (USA) on her way to the big final.
There, just like not so long ago at the World Championships in Bakuriani, Laffont faced Jaelin Kauf and once again after an extremely tight matchup, Laffont won the big final with 21 points to Kauf’s 14 and won her second competition this weekend.
It was the sixth straight win for Laffont and her fourth at the World Cup in 2022/23, and with a total of 11 podiums in 12 competitions to go along with her two World Championships gold medal, Laffont capped off another season on a high.
