The Ariégoise Perrine Laffont won the World Cup mogul skiing competition in Deer Valley in the United States, five days after her victory in Canada. A good omen three weeks before the start of the Winter Olympics.
Perrine Laffont ends the world mogul skiing competition in the United States with a bang with two consecutive victories.
With 80.20 points in the six-man final, Laffont narrowly edged Japanese Anri Kawamura (80.03) and Australian Jakara Anthony (79.84), who had nevertheless shown herself to be dominant in qualifying and during the first run of the final.
Perrine Laffont grabs the yellow bib as World Cup leader and gains confidence just three weeks before the Beijing Olympics which begin on February 4, 2022.
With her 24th victory on the world circuit, the 3rd this season, the reigning Olympic champion is back to the top after a difficult start to the season marked by worse results than usual, and by a heavy fall at Alpe d’ Boo in December.
