Britain’s Menna Fitzpatrick and guide Jen Kehoe have won their second gold medal at the Para Alpine Skiing World Championships in Sella Nevea, Italy.

The pair, who claimed gold in Wednesday’s downhill, won the visually-impaired super-G event.

But they missed out on the super-combined gold after Melissa Perrine and Bobbi Kelly put in a strong slalom run.

The Australian pair overhauled a 1.82-second deficit leaving Fitzpatrick and Kehoe in silver.

The times from the super-G run were combined with the slalom to make the overall super-combined time.

Fellow GB skiers Kelly Gallagher and Gary Smith claimed bronze in both the super-G and super-combined events on what was the final day of competition.
