United States' youngster Jaelin Kauf claimed a first International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup moguls victory as Canadian Mikael Kingbury continued his dominant form victory in Tazawako.

It marked a fifth successive World Cup win for Kingsbury as he added a dual win to his singles triumph yesterday in the Japanese resort, while at the same time confirming his sixth straight moguls Crystal Globe.

His crown was earned on the same day as Australia's Britt Cox, who secured the women's equivalent despite coming ninth overall today.

Frenchman Ben Cavet, ranked second in the overall standings, provided the closest opposition once again in the big final.

The heavyweight matchup did not disappoint, with both athletes throwing down identical jump combos.

But Kingsbury's speed proved enough to continue his edge and snatch a 21-19 victory.

Matt Graham of Australia took bronze.

“That was one of the craziest duals days I’ve had,” said Kingsbury, 

“But I felt really good today.

“Now I just want to get some good quality skiing in China [in the World Cup final] and then head to Spain on a mission to win two gold medals [at the World Championships].”

It was a very different winner in the women's event as 20-year-old Kauf produced the performance of her young career.

She went toe-to-toe with Yulia Galysheva of Kazakhstan in a hard-fought big final that resulted in the closest ladies’ finals score seen this season.

The American prevailed 19-16.

An even younger skier took bronze, as Kauf's 16-year-old team-mate Olivia Giaccio capped a great day for United States.

With the way results turned out as Perrine Laffont of France and Canada's Justine Dufour-Lapointe coming 17th and 12th respectively, Cox bagged her maiden moguls World Cup title, becoming the first Australian to achieve this feat.

"I live and breathe moguls, so to find out this afternoon that I have won the crystal globe for mogul skiing feels incredible," the 22-year-old said.

"The job certainly is not done yet. 

"We still have two more world cups in China before the World Championships in Spain."

The moguls tour now moves to Thaiwoo, China, for the World Cup finals beginning on Saturday (February 25).
