Guaranteed to win his fifth major globePerrine Lafont ended her season in the best way possible by claiming her 30th win at the World Cup of Mogul Skiing on Saturday, March 18, on the slopes of Almaty in Kazakhstan. In the parallel final, the French dominated Jaylen Kauff (21-14), vice world champion in singles and parallel behind the Pyrenees two weeks ago in Bakuriani (Georgia). Another American, Olivia Giacco, took the third step on the podium.
“I’m happy because the season is over, it was tough and complicated. It’s great to finish with two wins. I also have my two balls with me, I’m very happy.”commented the 24-year-old skater.
A year after her disappointing fourth place finish at the 2022 Olympic Games in Zhangjiakou (China), Perrine Lafont has managed to set records. With two world championship gold medals in singles and doubles, four World Cup victories, eleven podium finishes out of twelve races this winter, big globe in the general classification, and small globe in double mogul, Habs has resumed full strength for his discipline.
The success was notably achieved thanks to its new staff in the post-Olympic season, to which the skier from Monts d’Olmes, in the Ariège Pyrenees, did not fail to say hello: “Thank you very much to all my staff, because we have done a great job this season.”
