MEGEVE, France — Canadian freestyle ski star Mikael Kingsbury finished his near-perfect season with a win in Sunday's season-ending World Cup dual moguls event.
Kingsbury finished on top of the podium in seven of 10 World Cup moguls and dual moguls events this season, and finished second in the other three.
He finished the season with a career-best 940 points, 355 ahead of closest rival Dmitriy Reiherd of Kazakhstan, and for a second straight year won two Crystal Globes as moguls champion and overall freestyle skiing leader.
It was a strong finish to the season for Kingsbury. The 25-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, Que., also won his first Olympic gold medal last month at the Pyeongchang Winter Games.
Kingsbury beat Benjamin Cavet of France in the final round. Bradley Wilson of the United States was third.
"I had a tough bracket to go through and managed to win every round," Kingsbury said. "This year I had two goals — winning the Olympics and winning the two Crystal Globes, and I got exactly what I wanted.
"It's kind of crazy that my worst result this year was a sliver."
In women's competition, Montreal's Justine Dufour-Lapointe finished third, behind Jaelin Kauf of the United States and Perrine Laffont of France. Andi Naude of Penticton, B.C., was fifth.
Kauf won the overall women's moguls title with 436 points. Naude was second with 385 points, just three more than Laffont.
