Happy homecoming for our latest golden girl Kelly
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.
