DEER VALLEY RESORT, Utah — Canada's Mikael Kingsbury completed a sweep of the men's mogul events at the Deer Valley World Cup stop with a win in the dual moguls on Friday.

The ski star from Deux-Montagnes, Que., defeated Australia's Matt Graham in the big final to pick up his 20th career World Cup dual moguls gold medal.

Kingsbury also won the moguls event on Thursday in his first competition of the season.

He missed the start of the season after he fractured his T4 and T5 vertebrae in November while training for the opening World Cup event in Ruka, Finland.

Kingsbury now has 65 career World Cup victories in moguls and dual moguls in 111 starts. He's stood on the podium 93 times.

France's Benjamin Cavet took bronze by defeating Japan's Kosuke Sugimoto in the small final.

Brenden Kelly of Pemberton, B.C., was fifth, and Gabriel Dufresne of Repentigny, Que., was 12th.

Americans swept the women's podium, with Kai Owens defeating Hannah Soar in the big final and Tess Johnson defeating Kazakhstan's Yuliya Galysheva in the small final.

Montreal's Justine Dufour-Lapointe was the top Canadian in 13th.
