2021-03-08T10:53:23.825Z

The French Perrine Laffont was crowned world champion in mogul skiing on Monday, three years after her Olympic title in 2018.



At 22, Perrine Laffont continues to forge an incredible track record.

The French indeed won the "super final" of the World Championships in individual mogul skiing, this Monday in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

The Ariégeoise won ahead of the Kazakhe Yuliya Galysheva and the Russian Anastasiia Smirnova.

She won the only title that was missing from her record.

Olympic champion in 2018, Perrine Laffont had won the world title in parallel during the 2017 and 2019 editions but had never been titled in the individual mogul event, "being satisfied" with a silver medal in 2017 and bronze in 2019.

Exceptional Perrine Laffont!

The Frenchwoman is world champion!

In addition, Benjamin Cavet won this Monday the silver medal in the individual event behind the Canadian Mikaël Kingsbury, the boss of the discipline.
