Canada strikes gold in Sochi

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

Canadian Justine Dufour-Lapointe and sister Chloe have won gold and silver, respectively, in Women’s Freestyle Moguls at the Winter Olympics.

American Hannah Kearney took the bronze.

The 19-year-old Justine was one of three sisters to compete in the event, along with 22-year-old Chloe and 24-year-old Maxime, who finished a disappointing 12th.

Maxime will celebrate her 25th birthday on Sunday.

Canada’s medal haul now stands at three after Mark McMorris won bronze in men’s Slopestyle Snowboard earlier on Saturday.

Making the podium was a feat on its own as the Regina native was competing with a broken rib suffered just a few weeks ago.

American Sage Kotsenburg won gold while Norway’s Staale Sandbech took the silver.
