Freestyle aeriels was a demonstration event at the 1988 and 1992 Winter Olympics and would become a full-medal event at Lillehammer in 1994. The two top men in aeriels over the last few years had been Canadians Philippe Laroche and Lloyd Langlois, but Langlois did not compete in Albertville. Laroche won this event, followed by another Canadian, Nicolas Fontaine. Laroche would be World Champion in 1991 and 1993 and Fontaine in 1997. Laroche and Langlois would finish 2-3 at Lillehammer when aeriels became an Olympic sport, trailing Switzerland’s Sonny Schönbächler, who finished 15th of the 16 competitors in Albertville.
