Ready to win her fifth large crystal ball, Perrine Laffont ended her season in the best possible way by collecting her 30th victory in the Mogul Ski World Cup, on Saturday 18 March, on the slopes of Almaty in Kazakhstan. In the final of the parallel event, the Frenchwoman dominated Jaelin Kauf (21-14), vice world champion in singles and in parallel behind the Pyrenean two weeks ago in Bakuriani (Georgia). Another American, Olivia Giacco, took the third step of the podium.

“I’m just happy that the season is over, it’s been tough and complicated. It’s great to finish with two wins. I also have my two globes with me, I’m so happy”commented the 24-year-old skier.

An exceptional season

A year after her disappointing fourth place at the 2022 Olympics in Zhangjiakou (China), Perrine Laffont has set the record straight. With two gold medals at the World Championships in singles and doubles, four World Cup victories, eleven podium finishes out of twelve races this winter, the big globe in the all-around and the small globe in the double moguls, the Habs have taken back their full powers of his discipline.

A success obtained above all thanks to her new staff for this post-Olympic season, which the skier from the Monts d’Olmes, in the Ariège Pyrenees, did not fail to greet: “A huge thank you to all my staff, as we have done a great job this season.”
