Down woman Kelly Gallagher excited ahead of Sochi Paralympics

Bangor woman Kelly Gallagher says she and her guide Charlotte Evans will be going to the Sochi Paralympics "not just for a Games experience but to try and put in our best performance".

Gallagher, who was the first person from Northern Ireland to compete in the Winter Paralympics, finished sixth in the slalom and fourth in the giant slalom with previous guide Claire Robb in 2010.

Since teaming up with current guide Charlotte Evans in 2011, the pair have enjoyed plenty of success, including six World Championship medals.

Earlier this month, the British duo won three gold medals at a World Cup event in Canada.
