Justine Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal is back on the Olympic podium after earning silver in women’s moguls at PyeongChang 2018.

The veteran athlete scored 78.54, just missing a repeat of her gold-medal performance from Sochi 2014, where she made her Olympic debut. She was 0.11 points behind France’s Perrine Laffont.

Bronze in women’s moguls went to Yulia Galysheva of Kazakhstan with a score of 77.40.

This is her second Olympic podium, and also increases Team Canada’s moguls podium streak to four consecutive games.

Penticton's Andi Naude made the final six, but missed a gate on her final run and did not finish.

Three other Canadians competed in the finals, with Audrey Robichaud placing ninth and Justine's sister, Chloe Dufour-Lapointe, finishing in 17th place.
