INAWASHIRO, Japan -- Canadian moguls skier Mikael Kingsbury says he always sets his sights on a podium finish. And lately, hes been getting a lot of them. After winning bronze at a World Cup event on Saturday, the reigning Olympic silver medallist capped off his weekend in Japan with gold in dual moguls on Sunday. "Yesterday I wasnt disappointed, but I made an uncharacteristic mistake. Today I felt very good," Kingsbury said. "I really wanted to win and I focused on the stuff I was doing well. I didnt have my best training this morning so I had to refocus and managed to get the win." Kingsbury, of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., outperformed Japans Sho Endo in his final run. Montreals Pascal-Olivier Gagne took bronze for his first World Cup podium finish. The 24-year-old Gagne, who was ousted by Kingsbury in the semifinal, said that simply cracking the semis was a huge step for him, but winning bronze and sharing his first podium with Kingsbury and Sho was even better. "I was already assured of fourth place so it didnt even matter what happened after, I was just so happy to be there," he said. "I went to see Mik before the dual and took him in my arms because I knew it was my best result ever. "To share the podium with him, hes the most consistent skier Ive seen and Sho, hes one of the best right now, so to share the podium with both these guys really means a lot to me." Gagne got off to a slow start this season, making only one final in his first six events. While his Canadian teammates were winning medals in Sochi, Gagne had to go back to the NorAm circuit to earn a spot in this weekends World Cup event in Japan. He placed seventh in singles and second in dual moguls at Apex Mountain Resort outside of Penticton, B.C. on Feb. 15 and 16, respectively. Gagne says winning his first World Cup medal on the tough Japanese course made his victory even sweeter. "To finally have my first podium ever, and to have it here in Inawashiro means a lot to me," he said. "Its one of the courses thats the most difficult in the world. Its the course I always looked up to when I was young watching my idols. Its really a fight every time to ski here so Im really happy I made my first podium here." Quebec Citys Philippe Marquis was fourth, Montreals Marc-Antoine Gagnon placed fifth after being knocked out in the quarter-finals by Kingsbury, and two-time Olympic gold medallist Alex Bilodeau of Rosemere, Que., was ninth. In dual moguls, two skiers race down a course against each other, with the top score awarded to the athlete who performs the best tricks in the quickest time. Kingsbury admitted that having to ski against a fellow Canadian isnt exactly ideal. "For sure I dont want to face them in duals because its not fun to have to go up against your teammate," he said. "But when were in the gate, its like theyre from another country. Im not going to ski differently because theyre my friend. We push even harder almost when we are going against our own teammates, but we had a lot of fun today." On the womens side, Hannah Kearney of the United States won gold, followed by Elena Muratova of Russia and Japans Junko Hoshino. Montreals Maxime Dufour-Lapointe, who won bronze in the womens singles event Saturday, placed fifth. Her sister and reigning Olympic gold medallist Justine Dufour-Lapointe, finished ninth after taking first place on Saturday.

With the swimming qualifiers for the 2016 Rio Olympics fast approaching we caught up with Sports Scholar Siobhan and heres what she had to say…What has it been like coming back to your old school and seeing some of your old teachers? OConnor was joined on her visit by Sky Sports athlete mentor Tom Reed Its been really nice to come back to my old school and walk the corridors that are so familiar. I have really happy memories of my time here, I loved being able to see my friends every day. My teachers were so great with helping me balance school work with training, so its really nice to come back today with Sky Academy.And how was meeting Tom Reed and being involved in the Sky Sports Living for Sport session? Ive actually seen Tom around the Bath University campus so it was a bit weird seeing him at my old school. The session was great too, the kids looked like they were really enjoying themselves. I would have loved to be part of something like this when I was at school. How did you get into swimming?I started swimming when I was seven years old. My Dad is really into his sports so its safe to say I tried a lot of sports before I tried swimming. Who was your childhood hero? Why?Rebecca Adlington for sure. I remember watching her double gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics on TV. Shes such an inspiration and it was so amazing being on the same team with her at London 2012. She is such a lovely lady and has always been so kind and supportive.How many hours do you spend training a week?A lot! We have 10 swimming sessions a week - two every day apart from Wednesdays and Saturdays where we only have one. On average Ill cover 6km a session. On top of that we also have five land sessions, which can be anything from gym sessions to strength and conditioning. Whats the worst thing about swimming?I love swimming which is why I do it but the sacrifices to be the best swimmer I can, can be hard. I cant just drop everything and go out and see my friends. I also have to be careful with what I eat although I do love a box of Bens cookies! You have to treat yourself every now and then!What was it like competing at the London 2012 Olymppics? OConnor is setting her sights on a successful Olympics this summer in Rio London was an unforgettable experience, definitely a career highlight for me.dddddddddddd I was only 16 when selected and I was the youngest Team GB swimmer. What does Rio mean to you?The Olympic Games is a huge opportunity to compete at the highest level and an incredible, life-changing experience for any athlete. Im four years older, and like to think four years wiser than my first Olympics, so Im going into the next couple of weeks and months prepared and will be the very best I can be. Whats it like being a Sky Academy Sports Scholar?Its so great, Im one of 11 scholars in a variety of different sports. The best thing about it is that were all on the same journey, with the same end goal, so we have a lot in common. How has Sky Academy helped you in your swimming career to date?The support we get is unbelievable. The scholarship has helped me leave no stone unturned. Ive been able to go to altitude camps, and Ive just come back from a training camp in Australia, which was so beneficial. Were you into sports at school?I was yes, I did PE as an A-level at Ralph Allen. As a child I was into most sports, in fact there probably wasnt a sport I didnt try! However, as I got a little older, swimming became the focus and other sports took a back seat. I still follow most sports as a spectator and support Bath rugby and Arsenal!What was your favourite subject?I really loved PE and I think it has really helped me with my swimming. With swimming being a power to weight sport its so important being able to understand how the body works. Did you struggle with swimming and school? OConnor took part in a sports session during her visit I really did, and I ended up dropping A-levels as I couldnt manage the work load. I was missing lessons because of training or competitions. I even remember falling asleep a lot in lessons!
