Canada's Mikaël Kingsbury secured his ninth straight overall International Ski Federation (FIS) Freestyle Ski Moguls World Cup title after winning today’s dual moguls event in Krasnoyarsk.
The 27-year-old beat Great Britain’s Thomas Gerken Schofield in the big final at the Russian city's Sopka Cluster, claiming his seventh World Cup win of the season.
He scored 84.45 points to the 68.59 of Schofield, who became the first Briton to win a World Cup medal in moguls skiing.
"After I knew I was going to win it kind of released some pressure out of my shoulders and I started skiing a bit better," Kingsbury was reported as saying by The Canadian Press.
"This is one of the best venues I've competed at in my entire career.
"This is my third World Cup win in three starts in Russia.
"This place has been very good to me."
The United States' Bradley Wilson finished third after defeating France's Benjamin Cavet in the small final.
