Switzerland's Corinne Bodmer has taken the silver medal in the dual moguls at the Freestyle Ski World Championships at Whistler Mountain in Canada. Bodmer's performance, on the last day of competition, was the best of her career, building on her bronze two years ago.

The 31-year-old from Lausanne was delighted after picking up her medal, despite losing in the final to Norway's Kari Traa.

"I am so happy," she smiled. "This is like a dream. We all know that this course is really tough but I think that everyone was prepared for a tough course and it was a very good World Championships."

For Traa, the closing event ensured a remarkable double following her victory in the single moguls. It is the first time in the competition's history that a woman has won two World Championship gold medals in the same year.

Bodmer was the second Swiss woman to win a medal this week, after Michèle Rohrbach leapt to a silver medal in the aerials.
