Paralympics: Muraoka adds bronze in Alpine super combined

Japanese sit skier Momoka Muraoka added another medal to her growing stash at the Pyeongchang Winter Paralympics with the Alpine skiing super combined bronze.

The 21-year-old finished in a disability-factored total time of 2 minutes, 30.25 seconds, 2.66 behind winner Germany's Anna-Lena Forster. Anna Schaffelhuber, also of Germany, was competing for her eighth consecutive gold across two games but settled for silver.

The super combined consists of a run each on super-G and slalom courses. The skier with the fastest added time wins.

Despite adding to her silver medal in downhill and bronze in super-G to take Japan's medal count in Pyeongchang to five, Muraoka said she was not thrilled with the result.

"I had a pretty good time going into the slalom, which I'm not great at. It was a resounding loss and I'm disappointed," she said.

"Anna-Lena has great technique. This race made me realize how much I have to improve."

Muraoka is also competing in the giant slalom and slalom events.
