Winter Paralympics: Millie Knight Brett Wild Win Silver – in the downhill. An exciting moment for the two.
Britain’s Millie Knight and guide Brett Wild took downhill silver on the opening day of the Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang.
The pair, who are the world champions, finished 0.86 seconds behind defending Paralympic champions Henrieta Farkasova and guide Natalia Subrtova of Slovakia.
Knight, 19, is competing at her second Games while Wild is making his debut.
Knight’s Great Britain team-mate Menna Fitzpatrick crashed early on in her run. It was at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre but seemed unhurt. She was able to ski to the bottom of the course with guide Jen Kehoe.
GB have been set a target of between six and 12 medals by UK Sport in South Korea with an ambition of at least seven.
Millie Knight, has 5% vision and is registered blind. She was the youngest member of the Great Britain team four years ago in Sochi. But at 15 was too young to compete in the speed events.
Millie had a great day. Excitement and a silver made up her day in PyeongChang. Next on her wish list – GOLD.
Go girl. You are a champion
Watch the video to the end there is a lovely surprise for Millie. It left her in tears!
