Millie Knight finishes fourth in super combined at Pyeongchang Winter Paralympics

By Josh Fordham

Millie Knight just missed out on another medal at the Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang.

The 19-year-old, and her guide Brett Wild, finished fourth in the super combined event in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

There was still success for Paralympics GB in the event as Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe claimed silver.

They were no match for Slovakia's Henrieta Farkasova and guide Natalia Subrtova, who won their third gold medal.

Knight and Wild were third after the super G run but after the slalom they were 0.91 seconds behind the Australians who took the bronze.

On Saturday, the pair also took home silver in the downhill event on the first day of the Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang.

They followed this up the next day by claiming another silver in the super G.

The teenager has two more chances of winning gold in Pyeongchang.

Here's when you can next catch her racing:

Thursday, March 15 - Slalom Run 1 - 12.30am, Slalom Run 2 - 3.30am

Sunday, March 18 - Giant Slalom Run 1 - 12.30am, Giant Slalom Run 2 - 3.30am
