On Saturday, Japan’s Ikuma Horishima topped Kingsbury with a score of 93.88, winning World Cup gold in Tremblant, Que. Kingsbury was right behind him at 93.27.

“I didn’t see his run, but I heard his score of 93 points,” said Kingsbury. “I just told myself not to get excited, just do the run.

“Overall, it was a good run. I got 93 points so I’m not disappointed. I’m really not disappointed that my streak is over. I’m even glad we can put that aside. It stopped at 13, and I’m pretty sure that is a record that will be tough to beat in this sport.”
