According to the Canadian Press, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Alexandre Bilodeau and Justine Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal, Quebec each won the gold medal at a World Cup moguls event in Lake Placid, New York on Wednesday.

Bilodeau, the reigning gold medalist from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, posted a score of 25.72 points in the men's competition. Americans Patrick Deneen and Bradley Wilson finished in second and third place respectively at 25.42 points and 25.18 points.

For Bilodeau, it was his second straight World Cup victory this season as he also won in Deer Valley, Utah on January 11. Bilodeau has also finished in second place to Mikael Kingsbury of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec three other times on the World Cup stage this season.

On the women's side, Justine Dufour-Lapointe recorded a score of 23.90 points to beat Heidi Kloser of the United States by 0.4 points. Hannah Kearney, the reigning gold medalist from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, finished third with 23.13 points.

For Justine Dufour Lapointe, she rebounded from a poor qualifying session where she was only ranked 15th. The world's best mogulists will compete again in a World Cup event on Sunday in Val St. Come, Quebec.

The victories for Bilodeau and Justine Dufour-Lapointe are key because they come with less than a month from the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
