Olney skier at paralympics

A skier from Olney is taking part in the Giant Slalom at the Winter Paralympics today (Tuesday).

Anna Turney has already come sixth in the normal slalom, which she competed in on Sunday.

But she says she's hoping to do better in her second event, "Usually I'm better at the Giant Slalom, so I'm looking forward to Tuesday."

We spoke to Anna on Monday, from the ParalympicGB offices in Vancouver.

Anna started skiing three years ago after she broke her back during a snowboarding accident. She needs to raise £10,000 a year to be able to train each season.
