Northern Ireland skier Kelly Gallagher claimed the third IPC World Championships medal of her career with a bronze in the women's downhill in La Molina on Wednesday.

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.
