Kelly Gallagher Wins Sochi Gold Super G and Opening Ceremony

The Sochi Winter Paralympics 2014 has started brilliantly for Team GB and Team GG, and reached great brilliance levels this morning when Kelly Gallagher won gold for Team GB in the visually impaired Super G with the help of her guide Charlotte Evans.

Kelly Gallagher and Charlotte Evans’s 12G Performance

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sports report, containing real feelings of awe and inspiration at the achievement and bravery of the Paralympic athletes.

Yes, with two Gs in Gallagher’s surname; the Super G meaning two Gs (when Green and Grey are together) in the Greenygrey world, the G of gold, the G of Team GB, the GG of Team GG, and the two Gs times two in the greenygrey colours worn by Kelly Gallagher and Charlotte Evans that makes it a 12G performance by my reckoning.

Sochi Paralympics Super G Results

There’s a lot more Super G at the Paralympics. Anna Schaffelhuber won the Women’s Super G Sitting for Germany. Claudia Loesch won silver for Austria. Laurie Stephens won bronze for Team USA, and Anna Turney of Team GB just missed out on a medal finishing fourth… at least she made it onto the Greenygrey!

Marie Bochet and Solene Jambaque did the double for France in the Women’s Super G Standing, with Stephanie Jallen of Team USA taking bronze.

Akira Kano and Taiki Morii did the double for Japan in the Men’s Super G Sitting, with Caleb Brousseau of Canada taking bronze.

Akira Kano is on his way to gold in the men's super-G sitting class at the Sochi Paralympics on March 9. The Paralympics are being held in Sochi, Russia, in the same venues as the recently completed Winter Olympic Games.

Markus Salcher and Matthias Lanzinger did the double for Austria in the Men’s Super G Standing, with Alexey Bugaev of Russia taking bronze.

Jakub Krako of Slovakia took gold in the Men’s Super G Visually Impaired , with Mark Bathum of Team USA taking silver. Mac Marcoux of Canada took bronze.

Good luck to all the competitors, and I hope the Sochi 2014 Winter Paralympics continues to proceed as greenygrey greatly as the opening ceremony:
