Day two of the World Para-alpine skiing World Cup in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia delivered two silver medals for Australia, putting the team in a strong position building towards the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in March.
Tori Pendergast backed up her bronze medal from day one with a silver on day two in the Women’s Giant Slalom Sitting.
Pleased to be walking away with two medals from the World Cup, she admitted there is still a lot of work to go as she builds towards PyeongChang 2018.
“It was an improvement on yesterday but I still felt I was a bit conservative and I know I can ski better,” said Pendergast.
“Tactically it was an improvement on previous races. There is a bunch I can work on to make up the time and ski technically better, but tactically (that result) was a step in the right direction.”
Teammates Melissa Perrine and her sighted guide Christian Geiger also finished with a silver medal on day two in the Women’s Giant Slalom Visually Impaired.
Perrine and Geiger have had a stellar World Cup season so far, picking up two gold and one silver medal across three World Cup meets.
In other Aussie results, Mitch Gourley took sixth place in the Men’s Giant Slalom Standing, and Shaun Pianta and his sighted guide, Jeremy O’Sullivan, finished ninth in the Men’s Giant Slalom Visually Impaired.
