      An 18-year-old B.C. skier with a disability has made it to the top of the podium in Pyeongchang.

      West Vancouver-born Mollie Jepsen won the women's super combined standing event at the Paralympic Games with a time of 2:32:70.

      She lives in Whistler and skis with one pole because of a congenital limb deficiency.

      In the same event Calgary resident Alana Ramsay won her second bronze at the Paralympics.

      It's Jepsen's first gold medal at the Paralymics after earlier winning Canada's first bronze at the 2018 Games.

      She won even though it was the first time she had ever competed in the super combined standing event.
