“Canada has become a country known for its freestyle skiers, and the names Justine and Chloe are what everyone is talking about today,” said Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee. “In winning Olympic gold and silver, Justine and Chloé, will take their place not only among Canada’s greats, but also among the world’s finest. The Canadian Olympic family is proud of this accomplishment and we recognise the fine efforts of Maxime Dufour-Lapointe and Audrey Robichaud who had strong top 12 finishes.”

Earlier today, Yves Lapointe and Johane Dufour, the proud parents of Canada’s newest medallists acknowledged how attached the three sisters are.

"Our three of our daughters are very close, they rely on each other and complement each other well. They always train together, study together, they are a team and their combined effort is crucial.”
