Britain’s wheelchair curlers have had a rollercoaster week in Vancouver. They bounced back from two opening-day defeats with a 10-2 win over Switzerland on the second day of Paralympics competition. The team then lost 7-4 to Korea and 8-7 against the USA. On day four there was hope with a 9-2 win over Germany which was then followed by a 7-6 defeat by Sweden following a deciding tie-breaker end on day five.
On the final day the team lost 6-3 to Italy before a 10-4 consolation win over Japan meaning they finished in sixth place.
Kelly Gallagher led the way for the ParalympicGB skiers with a fourth place finish in the Giant Slalom. She completed her first run in 1:38:65 which put her eighth in the women’s visually-impaired discipline, then had a fantastic second run which raised her four places in the rankings into fourth, just three seconds off a podium position.
The result is the best finish for a British visually-impaired skier since 1994.
