Menna Fitzpatrick Adds To Medal Haul With Slalom Silver At Worlds

Menna Fitzpatrick struck slalom silver with guide Jen Kehoe at the Para Alpine World Championships in Slovenia.

The Olympic champions finished 5.08 seconds behind Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova and Natalia Subrtova who took gold.

It was Mansfield-born Fitzpatrick’s second medal of the championships after the British pair claimed bronze in the giant slalom on Tuesday.

Fellow Britons Kelly Gallagher and guide Gary Smith finished fourth in the visually impaired slalom competition.

Fitzpatrick, 20, and Kehoe are Britain’s most successful Winter Paralympians.

The duo won slalom gold and silvers in the giant slalom and super combined as well as super-g bronze, at the PyeongChang Games in South Korea last March.

The World Championships now switch to Sella Nevea in Italy for next week’s speed events.
