All three of Canada's Dufour-Lapointe sisters are accomplished, but Justine has bragging rights in at least one category: She was the first of the trio to win an Olympic gold medal.

The youngest of the sisters, Justine dethroned U.S. skier and reigning Olympic champion Hannah Kearney at the 2014 Sochi Games to win gold in her Olympic debut. She was joined on the podium by her sister Chloe, who ended up taking silver, while Maxime ended up 12th. Justine was just 19 years old at the time.

Part of what had motivated Justine to become an Olympian was watching Chloe compete at the Vancouver Games four years prior (Chloe placed fifth in that contest).

Since joining the World Cup circuit during the 2010/11 season, Justine has yet to finish lower than fourth overall in the end-of-season moguls rankings. She has also won a total of four medals at the world championships, including moguls gold in 2015.
