Mikael Kingsbury crossed the finish line 2-100ths ahead of Canadian teammate Alex Bilodeau Friday in the dual moguls final, but it was Bilodeau taking the world championship.
The judges deemed Bilodeau superior over his two jumps, giving him his third consecutive world title in Voss, Norway. It was a reversal of the finish in individual moguls earlier this week, when Kingsbury of Deux-Montagnes, Que., was first and Rosemere, Que., native Bilodeau placed second.
"I'm happy it fell on my side today," said Bilodeau, the 2010 Olympic gold medallist in moguls. "We're finishing the week on a good note."
Chloe Dufour-Lapointe overcame a slip at the top of the hill to take gold in the women's event, just ahead of Miki Ito of Japan.
"I'm so happy, I don't even realize it right now," the Montreal native said.
Dufour-Lapointe said after the win she was happy to land on the podium just like her younger sister did earlier this week. Justine Dufour-Lapointe won bronze in individual moguls.
Bilodeau said just before the Canadian anthem played that he was happy to come out on top, as the judges had a difficult task in separating the two Canadians.
Kingsbury, the leader in the World Cup points standings this season, was satisfied with his performance.
"The final was super tight, it could have went either way like everyone's saying, but I'm happy my teammate takes it," said Kingsbury. "We're just going to have a good time after the event."
Americans finished third Friday in the dual moguls finals, with Patrick Deneen and 2010 Olympic gold winner Hannah Kearney landing on the podium.
