Neil Simpson and his brother Andrew signed off from an unforgettable Beijing 2022 in the men’s slalom with their confidence sky high.

The duo from Banchory finished in 9th place to end an incredible Paralympic Winter Games where they became the first British men to win a gold medal on snow with victory in the Super G and quickly followed that up with bronze in the Super Combined.

Neil, who is the youngest member of ParalympicsGB squad at 19, said: “Confidence wise this is a huge boost for next season. Skiing wise we have showed what we can do.


It's been really special, a really cool experience. The team environment has been really good everything about it has been well organised.

“Coming out to the Games was something pretty special anyway and then we wanted to try and enjoy it.

“What I have learned is we have nothing to be afraid of at this level of competition. You have the hype and additional pressure but if you can put that to one side you can treat it as just another race.

James Whitley finished in 8th place in the Standing Slalom while in the Sitting Slalom Dan Sheen did not finish in tricky conditions and Alex Slegg was disqualified.
