Canada's Mikael Kingsbury has captured his first Olympic title, winning gold in the men's moguls at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

The 25-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, Que., scored 86.63 in the third and final run to take top spot.

Australia's Matt Graham took silver with 82.57 while Daichi Hara captured bronze with 82.19.

Kingsbury, the World Cup leader and Sochi Games silver medallist, was the top qualifier after scoring 86.07 points Friday.

Kingsbury has won six straight World Cup season titles and is on track for a seventh.

 

Canadian snowboarder Laurie Blouin has won a silver medal in the women's slopestyle.

Sporting a black eye after a nasty crash in training a few days ago, Blouin overcame high winds to nail a clean second run for 76.33 points.

The reigning world champion from Stoneham, Que., Blouin was second behind American Jamie Anderson, who scored 83.00 on her first run.
