Montreal's Dufour-Lapointe sisters receive gold and silver medals

Sisters thrown into spotlight after one-two win

It's been quite a weekened for Montreal skiing sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe.

They've won over many new fans as the first Canadian siblings to win medals in the same Olympic event.

Justine, who won gold in the women's moguls Saturday, says she gave herself a pep talk before her run.

"This is my day and I will own that moment for myself and I will ski for myself. This is what I said before going down the hill", said Justine.

Chloe Dufour-Lapointe picked up the silver medal.

The sisters were given their medals Sunday during a flag-raising ceremony.

Their sister Maxime, though, failed to make it to the podium.

The sisters were thrust into the spotlight after the one-two win, doing countless interviews.

The sisters say their next step is a women's clothing brand.
