It was Perrine's first medal after three Winter Paralympics after promising results at Vancouver but an unfortunate series of DNFs and disqualifications in Sochi.

The 30-year-old was sixth after yesterday morning's super-G but posted the afternoon's fastest slalom time by more than two seconds.

She sat in the gold medal position for most of the second stage before Farkasova and FitzPatrick overtook her with the last and second-last runs respectively.

Perrine and Geiger had an impressive slalom run finishing with a total time of 2:30.82.

They were in first place in a field of eight women where there were three DNFs from the super-G.
