Paul McCartney's ex-wife bags silver at New Zealand Winter Games

Melbourne, August 22 (ANI): Sir Paul McCartney's former wife, Heather Mills came second in the Women's adaptive Slalom Standing LW4 race at the Winter Games in New Zealand.

Mills, who is ranked 28th in the world event, clocked two minutes 9.09 seconds and missed out on the gold to Canada's Melanie Schwartz on Queenstown's Coronet Peak, the Age reported.

The 45-year-old former model had won four gold medals at last year's US Adaptive Alpine Skiing National Championships in Aspen, Colorado.

She lost her leg below her knee in a road accident in 1993 and is now hoping to qualify for the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi.

She was married to McCartney in 2002 and they divorced six years later. (ANI)
