MONTREAL (AP) — Olympic gold medalist Alexandre Bilodeau headlines Canada's freestyle ski team roster for the Sochi Olympics.

At the 2010 Games in Vancouver, Bilodeau won the moguls for the country's first gold at an Olympics on home soil. He won his third straight World Cup moguls event last weekend, edging out countryman Mikael Kingsbury, who also made the team.

Slopestyle world champion Kaya Turski and world aerials silver medalist Travis Gerritts were also among the 20 athletes announced Monday.

Sisters Chloe, Justine and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe are on the women's moguls team. Chloe and Justine finished 1-2 over the weekend at a World Cup event.
