Winning weekend for British athletes

Menna Fitzpatrick and guide Jennifer Kehoe won two golds at the Para Alpine World Cup in Canada at the weekend.

With six medals from six races coming into the competition, the duo had yet to win at a World Cup until they became downhill champions in Kimberley.

Day one saw them break their duck, while fellow Brits Millie Knight and guide Brett Wild collected bronze in the same event.

'Menna and Jen' followed up with a silver in the second alpine downhill event of the opening day, with Slovakia's Henrieta Farkasova and Nataly Subrtova sneaking top spot.

But the British pair dusted themselves down and were victorious in the women's super-G vision impaired event, with their Slovakian rivals taking second place as Knight and Wild took bronze.

The second super-G race saw Fitzpatrick and Kehoe claim the silver medal and closely followed by Knight and Wild, who again took third.

The competition continued a brilliant build-up for our ParalympicsGB athletes, and both pairs will be joined in the alpine skiing by Kelly Gallagher who triumphed at the Sochi 2014 Games, with new guide Gary Smith.

Which Brit will come out on top...? We'll have the action on Channel 4 between 9 March-18 March.
