HEATHER Mills has claimed a new title – the fastest disabled woman on skis.

Washington-born Mills, who lost the lower half of her left leg and crushed her pelvis after she was knocked down by a police motorcycle in 1993, set the new world record in the Alpine resort of Vars.

The 47-year-old said she was “amazingly proud” after she hurtled down the French mountain at 103.6mph.

She said: “I feel completely elated. It was such an incredible thing to do.”

Mills, who married Sir Paul McCartney in 2002 and was divorced from the former Beatle in 2008, said: “It’s a rare man who can give you the same thrill that going down a mountain at more than 100mph can.”

She wants to compete in the Paralympics in South Korea, adding: “I’ll be 50 then – but that won’t stop me.”
