Etherington will celebrate her 23rd birthday during the Games on Sunday, 9 March and will be hoping to mark the occasion with a medal.

She first tried skiing during a family holiday when she was eight and skied recreationally for 10 years before joining the British Disabled Ski Team development squad in 2009.

After claiming bronze at last year's World Championships in Spain, she teamed up with guide Caroline Powell for this season and the pair have won Europa Cup and World Cup medals.

Etherington has a degree in education studies and geography from Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln and is currently on a part-time PGCE secondary geography course.
