Dual Moguls, A New Olympic Event!
Vancouver, June 30, 2022 – Six new Olympic medals will be up for grabs by the world’s best moguls skiers at the next Olympic Winter Games in Milano-Cortina in 2026. Last Friday, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced the list of official events for the next Winter Games. In freestyle skiing, women’s and men’s dual moguls competitions have been added to the list.
They will be held alongside the individual moguls event, which has been an official Olympic sport since the 1992 Albertville Games.
“Freestyle Canada is very excited to see the addition of dual moguls to the Winter Olympic program for 2026 in Italy. We are confident that this will prove an exciting complement to the Olympic program, as well as for Canadian fans. Canadian athletes have long been a force in moguls, and the addition of duals will certainly provide an additional opportunity to showcase this strength,” stated Freestyle Canada CEO Peter Judge.
As a regularly occurring competition at World Championship and World Cup events, dual moguls is familiar territory for the Canadian team.
Canada’s Mikaël Kingsbury won the Crystal Globe in the discipline in 2021-2022, thanks to his four victories in as many World Cup contests. Since the beginning of his career, the Québécois has also won three gold and two silver World Championship medals in the event.
The Milano-Cortina Olympic Games will be held from February 6 to 26, 2026.
