Third medal for Jade Etherington at Winter Paralympics

Lincoln paralympian Jade Etherington has won her second silver medal for Great Britain at the Sochi Winter Paralympics.

The 23-year-old visually impaired ski racer and her guide Caroline Powell narrowly missed first place in the slalom by only 0.65 of a second.

After her first run, Jade clocked in with hopes for gold but dropped behind Russia’s Aleksandra Frantceva who claimed a winning time of 2 minutes and 1.24 seconds.

The achievement will mark Jade’s third medal overall in the competition. As previously reported, the trainee teacher won silver in the downhill skiing on March 8.

On March 10, she then managed to win bronze in the visually impaired Super-G skiing event.

Jade suffers from glaucoma and Axenfeld Syndrome.
