on 23-08-2013 12:00
Tough icy conditions were the order of the day at the 2nd IPCAS World Cup Slalom at Coronet Peak.
Of the British contingent, there was further medal success for VI skier Jade Etherington and her guide Caroline Powell as they improved on their bronze medal from day one by taking silver.
There were also strong performances from Tim Farr and Ben Sneesby in the men’s Sitting category, with Tim again narrowly missing out on a first World Cup Medal. There was less success for the other British athletes as they struggled with the difficult conditions with Heather Mills (women’s Standing), Anna Turney (women’s Sitting), James Whitley (men’s Standing) and Mick Brennan (men’s Sitting) all failing to finish.
The Team will have a rest day tomorrow before travelling four hours further north to Methven for the event at Mt Hutt on Monday (Super G) and Tuesday (Super Combined).
