This is a really nice descent. Ikuma put all the gum and he gave everything to get in front of me, Kingsbury analyzed. I know that. When I saw his time, he was faster than me. I know he did a good run, but looking at him he scored the best run in the competition.
I knew I kept the door open for him. I don’t think it provided my best skiing, but it was great for the conditions, ”Kingsbury added. When I crossed the line, I knew the next competition was at the Olympics. My body is fine, I am healthy and that is important.
He is the only Canadian player in the Super Final. Laurent Dumice, Brendan Kelly, Gabriel Dufresne and Jordan Kober finished 8th, 9th, 10th and 28th respectively.

I’m happy for Laurent. I knew it would not be so easy to recover from a back injury and I knew he was still in pain. He was Clutch [il s’est accroché]. I was not surprised, but his skiing impressed me, Says Kingsbury.
Kingsbury’s biggest rival, Horishima, signed on the seventh podium in seven events this season and won for the third time in his career.
