Beatle's ex-wife claims silver medal

Friday, August 23, 2013

Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills has taken out second place in the women's adaptive slalom event at the New Zealand Winter Games. Mills, who is ranked 28th in the world in the event, clocked two minutes 9.09 seconds to miss out on the gold to Canada's Melanie Schwartz (1:59.79) on Queenstown's Coronet Peak.

The 45-year-old former model lost her leg below the knee in a road accident in 1993. She married Beatles star McCartney in 2002 and they divorced six years later. She won four gold medals at last year's US Adaptive Alpine Skiing National Championships in Aspen, Colorado and is hoping to qualify for the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi in February
