Menna Fitzpatrick, Jen Kehoe claim silver for Great Britain

Great Britain's Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe claim silver in the women's visually impaired super combined event at the Winter Paralympics in PyeongChang.

Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe have won a silver medal for Great Britain in the women's visually impaired super combined event at the Winter Paralympics.

After a disappointing start to the event, skier Fitzpatrick and guide Kehoe quickly got themselves back into contention ahead of the final day but despite an excellent showing in the concluding slalom run, the pair were forced to settle for second.

Slovakia's Henrieta Farkasova and guide Natalia Subrtova claimed gold, but the British duo were delighted to finish as the best of the rest in PyeongChang.

Fitzpatrick told BBC Sport: "Today we went for it and it was really awesome. I wasn't impressed with my skiing on Sunday because I was quite static and wasn't getting in the tuck when Jen was shouting at me to."

Kehoe added: "It's absolutely amazing to come back from where we were two days ago and put in a really respectable slalom and a really respectable super G so we are over the moon and jumping for joy."

Three British pairings finished inside the top seven, with Millie Knight and Brett Wild claiming fourth and Kelly Gallagher and Gary Smith ending the competition in seventh.
