Mikael Kingsbury maintained his scintillating start to the season with a fourth win from four moguls World Cup outings courtesy of victory in Calgary.

The Canadian course once again proved the perfect home for the local hero, bagging his eighth victory in familiar surroundings since first topping the podium in 2011.

It also took the Olympic champion to 53 World Cup wins, with his score of 84.17 comfortably enough to prevail ahead of Sweden's Walter Wallberg, who bagged his second top-three finish of the season.

Olympic bronze medallist Daichi Hara was third on the day, earning his very first World Cup podium.

Kingsbury said: "I'm four for four, so it's a good start to the season, and it's good because it gives me a chance to pull ahead in overall standings.

"But the best part is that I'm feeling better and better on my skis, which is cool."

Kingsbury's flawless record ensures his points tally in the World Cup discipline standings is a perfect 400, with France's Benjamin Cavet well adrift in second place on 230.

The moguls World Cup action continues next weekend when the field heads to Lake Placid.
