Winter Paralympics: Britons Menna Fitzpatrick Jen Kehoe win slalom gold

Britain’s Menna Fitzpatrick and guide Jen Kehoe won gold in the women’s visually-impaired slalom at the Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang.

The pair, who had already won two silvers and a bronze in South Korea, beat Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova and Natalia Subrtova by 0.66 seconds.

It is GB’s first gold of these Games and only their second Winter Paralympic gold.

“We wanted to show what we are capable of,” Fitzpatrick told BBC Sport.

“I am so proud of what we did out there.”

Millie Knight and Brett Wild won bronze for GB to add to their two silvers in the downhill and super-G.

Kelly Gallagher, who won Britain’s first Winter Paralympic gold in Sochi four years ago with Charlotte Evans, was sixth with new guide Gary Smith.

It means the ParalympicsGB team meet their UK Sport target of six to 12 medals with the ambition of seven.

Welsh skier Fitzpatrick, 19, and army officer Kehoe, 34, trailed Farkasova and Subrtova, who were chasing their fifth gold medals of the Games, by 0.66 seconds after the first run.
