The French Perrine Laffont on Monday won the title of world champion in mogul skiing in singles, the last major title missing from her record, and Benjamin Cavet took the silver from the men.

Already Olympic champion, world cup winner and world gold medalist at the same time, the Pyrenean has now won everything at 22 years old.

On the track of Almaty (Kazakhstan), she beat the Kazakhe Yuliya Galysheva and the Russian Anastasiia Smirnova.

At the end of Final 1 (the 18 best), she was again ahead of Galysheva, but she again imposed her pace and contact with snow, and landed almost perfect jumps.

In the men's competition, the huge Canadian favorite Mikael Kingsbury won his fifth world championship title ahead of Cavet.

Kazakh Pavel Kolmakov climbed to the third step of the podium.
