Mikaël Kingsbury wins ninth consecutive Crystal Globe

After last weekend’s Moguls World Cup, Mikaël Kingsbury claimed his ninth straight Crystal Globe.

On Friday in Idre Fjäll, Sweden, despite the cancellation of the final World Cup, organizers still held a ceremony for the handing over of the big and small Crystal Globes and the Nations Cup.

Kingsbury won the little globe for being the best skier in men’s moguls, along with the Crystal Globe for best athlete of the season, out of all freestyle skiing disciplines combined.
