Chemmy Alcott
Alcott will also compete in the women's Super-G.

Britain's Chemmy Alcott finished 19th in the women's downhill to crown her comeback from three broken legs in the last four years in Sochi.

The 31 year old, competing at her fourth Olympic Games, produced a time of 1 minute 43.43 seconds, 1.86 seconds adrift of co-gold medallists Tina Maze of Slovenia and Dominique Gisin of Switzerland – the first time in Olympic history a winter gold has been shared.

Gisin said: "I didn't want to look at the big screens. It's crazy. There was a lot of nerves, a lot of sweat, lot of emotions. It was lonely there in the leader's box. It's incredible, how else can I say it. It's a big honour to share the gold with Tina, she's an amazing woman. This is awesome."

Fellow Swiss skier Lara Gut won bronze.

Alcott is due to compete in the Super G later in the Games, her best chance of finishing close to the podium places.

"This morning we were training and the guys were injecting the course so I'm feeling great for that," Alcott said.

"You get two minutes to show everyone what you have done for the last four years," she added.

"A top-20 after what I've been through is amazing justice. It was not pretty, but to finish less than two minutes out in an Olympic downhill - I'm swelling with pride."
