A trio of sisters from Montreal will present a triple threat in the women’s moguls finals at the Olympics.

Maxime, 24, Chloe, 22, and Justine Dufour-Lapointe, 19 are known as the D-Ls. They grabbed the No. 8, No. 2 and No. 3 spots , respectively.

The mogul event has athletes skiing down a bumpy slope and perform two jumps along their descent. They are judged based on the quality of their jumps, though speed does also factor into the judge's scores. In the lead is American athlete Hannah Kearney.
