Justine Dufour-Lapointe Biography
Justine Dufour-Lapointe was born March 25, 1994 and is a Canadian freestyle skier from Montréal, Quebec. She is the reigning Olympic champion in the moguls event. This was also the first time that Canadian sisters stood together on the podium, and the fourth time ever, when her sister Chloé Dufour-Lapointe won silver in the same event. Dufour-Lapointe was the FIS World Cup rookie of the year for the 2010–11 season. At the 2013 FIS World Championships, Dufour-Lapointe won a bronze medal in the moguls event.
Justine Dufour-Lapointe started her young career during the 2010–11 FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup. During that season, she became the youngest female winner of an FIS World Cup moguls event at the age of 16, winning the event in Mont Gabriel. She has two older sisters, Chloé Dufour-Lapointe and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe, who also compete in moguls.
She won her first major medal the 2013 FIS Freestyle Skiing World Championships where she placed third, winning the bronze behind the dominant Hannah Kearney, who had won the gold medal. Dufour-Lapointe had fallen during her qualification, but managed to place a second run good enough to qualify for the final. This was a proud result for Dufour-Lapointe; given the adversity required to win the bronze, she stated, "I’m so happy about my medal today, but in fact it’s not the medal so much as the path that I took to get it. The path was tough but I made it."
At the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Justine competed in Moguls along with her sisters Chloé and Maxime. This was the fifth time that three siblings have competed at the Winter Games in the same event. Justine finished first overall in the event with a score of 22.44, with her sister Chloé placing second with a score of 21.66. With the result, she became the youngest freestyle skiing champion ever at the Winter Games. Thanks to the win, this earned the sisters' and Canada's first gold and silver medals of the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Dufour-Lapointe said of the event with her sister and her excitement that "Holding Chloe's hand meant that I wasn't alone. I was in shock. I saw Chloe and I felt calm. Holding her hand, I knew it would feel more like home."
