Para Alpine Skiier Melissa Perrine has secured her second gold for the season on the World Cup circuit, this time in Zagreb.
Perrine (2:01.64) took first place in the Women’s Slalom Visually Impaired 2, adding to her win at the Kuhtai World Cup and upsetting Slovakian favourite Henrieta Farkasova, who missed out on the podium after failing to complete her first run.
The NSWIS athlete is timing her season form well, with the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympics taking place in two months time.
