Canada takes gold in men's moguls; U.S. wins bronze

WEST VANCOUVER, B.C. — Alexandre Bilodeau wins the gold medal in men's moguls to give Canada its first Olympic victory on home turf.

Bilodeau scored 26.75 points Sunday night to upset defending Olympic champion Dale Begg-Smith, a Vancouver native who now competes for Australia. Bryon Wilson of the United States took third.

Bilodeau's victory marks the first time a Canadian has won an Olympic event in the three times the games have been held inside Canada's borders. The previous Canadian Olympics were in 1976 in Montreal and 1988 in Calgary.
