According to the Sochi Olympic website on Thursday, the Montreal sisters of Chloe Dufour-Lapointe, Justine Dufour-Lapointe and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe all advanced to the first final of the women's moguls competition.

Chloe Dufour-Lapointe finished in second place with 22.64 points, Justine Dufour-Lapointe finished in third place with 22.28 points and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe finished in eighth place with 20.88 points.

Meanwhile Audrey Robichaud of Quebec City finished in ninth place with 20.61 points and also advanced to the first final.

In the first final on Saturday, 20 competitors will compete (10 from the first qualification and 10 from the second qualification). Eight mogulists will be eliminated from the first final and six more mogulists from the second final to determine the six mogulists who will compete in Saturday's third final (CBC, 11:00 a.m.). The gold, silver and bronze medals will be determined from the third final scores.

One major strength of Chloe Dufour-Lapointe and Justine Dufour-Lapointe is there minimal separation between their legs as they go down the hill. That should help them as they try to advance through the competition

According to Jennifer Heil of CBC (the women's moguls champion from the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino), American Olympic gold medalist Hannah Kearney struggled with a particular jump and was a little surprised that she received a score higher than the Dufour-Lapointe sisters.
