Menna Fitzpatrick and her guide Jen Kehoe claimed silver in the Winter Paralympics visually impaired Super Combined event.

The Britons were in second place after the Super-G section but could not edge ahead of Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova and her guide Natalia Subrtova.

Compatriots Millie Knight and Brett Wild just missed out on a medal in fourth, while Kelly Gallagher and Gary Smith ended up seventh.

"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.

"But after the individual Super G we knew we had one medal in the bag. Now we are just having a fabulous time and enjoying the Paralympics because often you go through the race and just think about skiing."

The British pair ended up with an overall time of 2 mins 29 secs, just 1.78secs behind the Slovakian pair. Melissa Perrine and Christian Geiger of Australia took bronze.
