Caroline Powell secures second Winter Olympics medal

First published in Sport

BASILDON skier Caroline Powell has added a second medal to her Winter Paralympics tally with a bronze in Super G this morning.

Powell was guiding Jade Etherington in their second event at the Sochi games and their third place finish saw them add the bronze to the silver they won in the downhill on Saturday.

But they were pipped to gold by GB team-mates Kelly Gallagher and her guide Charlotte Evans.

It was Britain's first ever gold medal at the Winter Paralympics.

Hilarious!
6 people in the race - gold and never mind bronze is not any kind of achievement.
This belittles the achievement of genuine athletes.
And they aren't actually blind!!
It's embarrasing! Is this the only thing GB can win - when there's nobody else in the race!!!!!!

I dont know about embarrassing, Id like to be able to ski fully sighted. the girls achievement are fantastic, what achievements have you made, I think you should think twice about making this kind of comment, I think its very insulting to anyone visually impaired or disabled in any way, I think lots of people would be rather disgusted
