Jon Santacana, Guide Win Silver at PyeongChang Winter Games

JEONGSEON, South Korea – Visually impaired Spanish skier Jon Santacana along with his sighted guide Miguel Galindo won the silver in the super combined event at the PyeongChang Winter Paralympics on Tuesday.

In the first run, the Super-G, the Spanish pair clocked a time of 1:27.34 and finished third behind Slovakia’s Miroslav Haraus and guide Maros Haraus, who came first, and Slovenia’s Jakub Krako of Slovakia and his guide Branislav Brozman, who finished second.

Canada’s Mac Marcoux and Italy’s Giacomo Bertagnolli, both favorites, fell in the first descent and failed to win a medal.

In the second run, the slalom, Santacana and Galindo clocked the second best time of the run, 47.79, which earned them a silver, just 0.91 behind Miroslav and Harauss.

Russia’s Valerii Redkozubov and guide Evgeny Geroev, who were competing as Neutral Paralympic Athletes, won the bronze.

Following the silver, Santacana and Galindo took their total medal tally to 6 (2 gold, 4 silver) in their fourth Paralympic Games together.

This is the second medal for Spain at the PyeongChang Paralympic Games after Astrid Fina won a bronze in snowboard cross.
