Competing for the first time in the Championships with guide Charlotte Evans, Gallagher added to the slalom silver and giant slalom bronze she won in Sestriere in 2011.

Gallagher said: "This is only the fourth downhill we have done together so we are really delighted to win a medal at this level. We feel we have the ability and motivation to do even better."

Gallagher, who is part of a six-strong team of British athletes in La Molina, is competing in four more alpine disciplines, with the super G next up on Thursday.
