Happy homecoming for our latest golden girl Kelly

Editor's Viewpoint

Our golden girl, Paralympic skier Kelly Gallagher from Bangor, is getting used to being feted by the high and mighty, after attending a reception at 10 Downing Street along with other medal winners.

Her achievement – along with her guide Charlotte Evans – in winning a gold medal was truly remarkable and is spurring her on to compete at the 2018 Winter Games.

Both girls have scrimped and saved to reach their world-beating status and are now deserving of greater support, both from within the sport and from sponsors. Kelly has overcome severe visual impairment to excel at a very dangerous sport and is yet another impressive ambassador for Northern Ireland.

Let's give her a rousing welcome back on home soil.
