The visually-impaired skier from Bangor in Co Down fell during the slalom on Tuesday.

Her teammate Jade Etherington took the silver medal after two competitors were disqualified, while gold went to Aleksandra Frantceva of Russia.

Gallagher will race again in the slalom on Wednesday.

It comes after the 28-year-old, and her guide Charlotte Evans, won Paralympics GB's first ever gold medal in the Super-G category.

Gallagher and Evans were the first of the six pairs down and had an anxious wait to see if their time would be good enough.

Russian world champion Aleksandra Frantceva was expected to go quicker, but crashed out, leaving the British duo on top of the standings.
