Canada's Alex Bilodeau retained his Olympic moguls title Monday and then celebrated with his brother, a sufferer of cerebral palsy who he described as the real champion.
Bilodeau took gold with a stunning score of 26.31 with Mikael Kingsbury claiming silver with 24.71 as Canada once again dominated the moguls following sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe's gold-silver run in the women's event.
Alexandr Smyshlyaev (24.34) gave Russia some joy and prevented a Canadian clean sweep by pipping Marc-Antoine Gagnon (23.35) for bronze.
After completing his podium duties, Bilodeau then went over to hug his older brother, Frederic, who suffers from cerebral palsy, and helped him over a barrier to celebrate his medal.
"It was amazing. My brother is my everyday inspiration," said Bilodeau.
"Like I say all the time, if he had the life that I have lived, he would be a three-time Olympic champion."
Bilodeau, 26, also revealed he would see out the rest of the World Cup season and then call it quits, tipping Kingsbury to reign once he has finished.
"It's a great feeling, but I need to first of all thank all my colleagues," he said.
"I was the third to go, there were two other Canadians after me. Every day they push me in training and that's why I got my best skiing tonight.
"That's why I'm the best skier I have ever been right now and the guy that finished second, he is going to win everything after I have gone.
"The future of freestyle skiing in Canada is not done, there are so many good kids coming up and I am so glad to share a podium with one of them," he added.
It wasn't all plain sailing, however, for Bilodeau, who had posted the highest score in qualifying (24.70).
In the first phase of the final he was only eighth after making a mistake on the way down, yet he only needed to be in the top 12 to reach the second phase.
There again he wasn't at his best, finishing third behind Kingsbury and Gagnon, but when it mattered most, he put down a run that was an incredible 1.6 points better than anything else seen all day.
Kingsbury, 21, was delighted with his performance.
"It's crazy. I was going for gold, but just to be on the podium is crazy and I am with my teammate. It's just unbelievable."
