Canada’s Mikaël Kingsbury captured his first Olympic title Monday, winning gold in the men’s moguls at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
The 25-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, Que., scored 86.63 in the third and final run to take top spot at Phoenix Park.
Kingsbury, the World Cup leader and Sochi Games silver medallist, saved his best for last, using an off-axis 720 and a perfect landing to win gold.
Canada has now won gold in men’s moguls for three straight Olympics after now-retired Alexandre Bilodeau took top spot in both Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014.
