French Skiers Take Gold and Silver in Women's Super-G Event

ROSA KHUTOR — French skier Marie Bochet won her second gold medal of the Sochi Paralympics on Monday with victory in the women's standing super G.

Bochet, 20, charged down the Rosa Khutor slope in a time of 1 minute 24.20 seconds to add the gold to the one she won in the downhill on Saturday.

She was part of a French one-two finish as Solene Jambaque won the silver, two seconds further back.

Russia's Inga Medvedeva was provisionally credited with the bronze but was later disqualified after missing a gate. 18-year-old Stephanie Jallen of the U.S. promoted into third place.

Earlier in the day, Kelly Gallagher won Britain's first gold medal at a Winter Paralympics as she came first in the visually impaired super G class.

Paralympic skiing events use the principle of "calculated time," under which an athlete's time is modified by a percentage reflecting the severity of their disability.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
