Flawless Fitzpatrick wins again in Veysonnaz
Menna Fitzpatrick continued her formidable form on the slopes as she claimed another World Cup victory in Veysonnaz.
Britain’s most-decorated Winter Paralympian, alongside guide Jennifer Kehoe, triumphed in the third super-G of the week after Australian rival Melissa Perrine did not finish her run.
It was the Paralympic slalom champion’s third medal in two days in Veysonnaz, having also claimed World Cup gold and silver in her first two super-G races in Switzerland on Wednesday.
Perrine and guide Bobbi Kelly were leading the way after the first split, posting a rapid 24.31 seconds, as Fitzpatrick and Kehoe clocked 27.12s.
But the Australian pairing failed to complete the course as they skied out in the second section, meaning Fitzpatrick and Kehoe claimed victory by crossing the line in 1:21.77.
The triumph continued an impressive couple of weeks for Fitzpatrick, who also won two golds, two silvers and a bronze at the World Para Alpine Championships in Sella Nevea/Kranjska Gora.
Fitzpatrick became ParalympicGB’s most successful Winter Paralympian last year alongside Kehoe at PyeongChang 2018, by winning one gold, two silvers and a bronze.
Following victory in their third and final super-G race of the week, the British duo will have another chance to add to their medal collection when the giant slalom takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
