The FIS Freestyle Moguls World Cup tour returns to Calgary this weekend for what will be the 13th World Cup competition.
Bermuda Winter Olympic hopeful Matthew Leseur will compete on the course where Moguls made its Olympic debut as a demonstration sport back at the Calgary 1988 Olympic Winter Games.
With just weeks to go before Moguls competition makes its eighth appearance on the world’s stage at the PyeongChang 2018 Games, the stakes for this weekend’s event are as high as they’ve ever been in Calgary.
The Calgary course is one that has been kind to the host Canadians, historically speaking, with both the Canadian ladies and men placing at least one athlete on the podium in every one of the past eight seasons of competition at the venue.
On the men’s side, Mikael Kingsbury has been absolutely dominant in Calgary, and is looking to maintain a run of seven straight podiums at the venue that includes six straight victories dating from the 2010/11 season through to 2015/16.
