KANGWONLAND, Korea - Stephani Victor (Park City, Utah) and Allison Jones (Colorado Springs, Colo.) are leading the way for Team USA at the IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships.  Victor has collected three gold medals, and Jones two silver medals, through the first three days of competition.

Victor took the top spot on the podium in the slalom, giant slalom and super combined events, while Jones notched second place finishes in the slalom and super combined.

The super combined was a combination of a run of super G and a run of slalom.

"The entire staff is thrilled for Stephani and Allison," said Head Coach Ray Watkins. "Both of them went all out and got the job done as we expected them to do."

The IPC World Championships will continue Tuesday with the super G before moving on to the high-speed dowhill for the final individual event on Saturday. The Championships will close with a giant slalom team event on Sunday.
