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.
