According to the Canadian Press, Canadian Olympic champion Alexander Bilodeau of Montreal, Quebec won a World Cup moguls event in Park City, Utah on Saturday.

Bilodeau, who won the men's moguls competition at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, posted a score of 24.62 points to win his first World Cup since March 15 in Are, Sweden. Bilodeau was reportedly very disappointed with his second place finish last week in Calgary, and was able to rebound with a first place podium finish.

Mikael Kingsbury of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec remained a contender for an Olympic medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi by finishing in second spot. Kingsbury had won three World Cup competitions already this year. Finally, Alexander Smyshlyaev of Russia won the bronze medal with a score of 23.80 points.

On the women's side, Maxime Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal, Quebec moved a step closer to joining her sisters, Chloe and Justine, on the Canadian Olympic team with a third place finish. The ladies competition was won by Hannah Kearney of the United States with Yulia Galysheva of Kazakhstan in second place.

The next World Cup moguls competition will be in Lake Placid on January 15.
