Paralympics – And another – Jade and Caroline win SILVER MEDAL – Super Combined

Carol_ParalympicsJade and Caroline made history today (Friday March 13) as they clinched silver in the women’s Visually Impaired Super Combined with a spectacular performance in the Super-G discipline, making them the most decorated British female winter Paralympians of all time.

The Super-Combined silver is their fourth medal of the Games and follows the silvers won in the Downhill and the Slalom, in addition to bronze in the Super-G. The pair have surpassed the three medals won by Denise Smith and Ann Peskey at the 1984 Games in Innsbruck, claiming the title of the most decorated female winter Paralympians in British history.

Their success today also represents the most medals won by any winter Paralympian from a single Games, but only equals the record for most decorated winter Paralympian as Richard Burt and Matthew Stockford who each won four medals between the 1994 Games in Lillehammer and the 1992 Games in Tignes-Albertville.
