ROSA KHUTOR, Russia, AFP - Canada's Alex Bilodeau has retained his Olympic moguls title 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.

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.
