Millie Knight on day two of the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games along with Brett Wild sealed a double by adding super-G silver to yesterday’s downhill equivalent.
The medals kept coming for ParalympicsGB with Menna Fitzpatrick and Jennifer Kehoe claiming the bronze at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre.
Knight admitted she had to battle the nerves as she and Wild were first out of the gate in the super-G. Together they clocked 1:33.76. Fitzpatrick and Kehoe were next just shy of their teammates – crossing in 1:34.54.
The Brits then watched on as Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova and Natalia Subrtova, snatched first-place with a run of 1:30.17.
“I can’t believe that this has happened again,” said Knight. “It’s amazing it really is. I was quite nervous in the start gate today, a little bit more so than yesterday and to get that result is fantastic.
“Last night and this morning I was really relaxed, I think it really took a lot of pressure off so it meant that I slept really well and was in a really great place to race.
“But for some reason my head always gets a bit carried away and makes me nervous.
“If I’d thought I would have two medals in two days I would have said you are crazy. This time four years ago I was sat in the crowd watching Kelly (Gallagher) win gold.
“I was just over the moon and I thought if I could just one day be that good then that would be amazing.”
