According to the Canadian Press, swept the podium at a World Cup moguls event in Deer Valley, Utah on Thursday.

World moguls champion Mikael Kingsbury of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec posted a score of 26.39 to win the event. He was followed by reigning Olympic champion Alexandre Bilodeau of Montreal, Quebec at 25.29 points and Marc-Antoine Gagnon of Quebec City, Quebec at 24.85 points.

The Canadian sweep is interesting because it comes only one month before the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

It will be interesting to see what Bilodeau's response will be after his second place on Thursday. According to Vicki Hall of the Calgary Herald, Bilodeau was extremely upset with the scoring of judges last week in Calgary (when he also finished in second place), that he declined interviews and did not participate in a national media conference call.

On the women's side, the Montreal sisters of Chloe Dufour-Lapointe and Justine Dufour-Lapointe finished in second and third respectively behind American Hannah Kearney.

There will be a second World Cup moguls event in Deer Valley on Friday.
