According to the Canadian Press, Canadians finished first and second in a World Cup moguls competition in Ruka, Finland on Saturday.
World Champion Mikael Kingsbury of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec was victorious with a score of 26.93 points, while Olympic champion Alexandre Bilodeau of Montreal, Quebec placed second with a score of 26.54 points.
Bilodeau's score was a full 1.3 points better than eventual bronze medalist, Sho Endo of Japan, who recorded 25.24 points.
This was the first World Cup competition for the Canadian mogulists this season and it is a very important year because in less than two months time it's the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
Bilodeau will be in tough to defend his Olympic title because Kingsbury is competing at a very high level, and should get strong consideration for the 2013 Lionel Conacher Award. However Bilodeau was very pleased on Saturday with his middle section.
In women's moguls, Justine Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal won the silver medal behind Olympic champion Hannah Kearney of the United States. Dufour-Lapointe is gaining national notoriety for starring in the chocolate milk commercials with Ottawa Senators' forward Jason Spezza.
Kingsbury, Bilodeau and Dufour-Lapointe will next compete in Calgary on January 4.
