Second Paralympics silver for Knight
Second Paralympics silver for Knight

Teenager Millie Knight celebrated her “crazy” achievement in claiming a second Winter Paralympics medal in as many days in Pyeongchang.

Knight, 19 from Canterbury, followed up her second place in the women’s downhill with another silver in the VI super-G along with her guide Brett Wild.

She said: “If you’d said I would have two medals in two days at the Paralympics I would have said you are crazy.

“This time four years ago I was sat in the crowd watching Kelly (Gallagher) win gold and now I’ve made the podium myself.

“I can’t quite believe this has happened again. I was really relaxed – I think it (my first medal) took a lot of pressure off, so it meant I slept really well and was in a great place to race.”

Her success completed a remarkable comeback for Knight, who had sustained concussion during a crash on the same course in Pyeongchang in February.

She was pipped to gold by Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova, who landed her seventh Paralympic title alongside guide Natalia Subrtova in a time of 1:30.17, over three seconds quicker than Knight.
