Etherington 'proud' of historic silver

Jade Etherington tells BBC Sport's Nick Hope she's "proud" after becoming the first British woman to win a Winter Paralympic medal on the snow with silver in the visually impaired downhill at the Sochi Games.

The 22-year-old from Lincoln and her guide Caroline Powell - who are making their Games debuts - clocked one minute 34.28 seconds at Rosa Khutor.

They finished 2.73 seconds behind Slovakia's Henrieta Farkasova and her guide Natalia Subrtova, while GB team-mate Kelly Gallagher was sixth.
