The Football League has said it could take up to 10 more days to make a decision on the ownership of Leeds.
Jade Etherington and Caroline Powell are prepared to sacrifice a fourth medal to go for an elusive gold.
Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough does not think his side are favourites for the FA Cup quarter-final with Charlton on Sunday.
Etherington and Powell were third fastest on the second run, but still held off Slovakia's Henrieta Farkasova by more than a second.
And their sense of disappointment at having to settle for second place was a sign of how much their ambitions have changed over the course of the competition.
Etherington said: "I know we can work really well together, I know we can do it.
"I need to keep that mentality that I can do it, but just actually getting the medal after all these years is amazing."
Powell added: "The first run and second run were very different. The first run we started right at the front and got the best piste we could. The visibility was really good as well.
"On the second run visibility was not so good, it was a bumpier course because we were going down seventh so it's been raced on. We did well, but we didn't do well enough."
Paul Dickov insisted his Doncaster side should have beaten 10-man Watford by a bigger margin than the eventual 2-1 result.
But the Rovers manager also admitted his team got lucky with a decision that saw goalkeeper Sam Johnstone go unpunished after hauling down Troy Deeney late in the first half as he was poised to tap home an equaliser, after Chris Brown had headed Rovers in front.
Brown's opener was matched by Ikechi Anya's equaliser, before Billy Sharp grabbed a stoppage-time winner for Doncaster.
Dickov reserved praise for new father James Coppinger, whose wife gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday. Coppinger, usually an attacking midfielder, slotted into an unfamiliar right-back slot against Watford.
Gabriel Tamas will be out injured for four to six weeks with a fractured cheekbone, and Dickov also claimed Paul Quinn, a right-back by preference, was "fantastic" for playing in a centre-back role alongside Abdoulaye Meite.
Massimo Cellino has told Leeds he will not inject any more money into the club unless his takeover bid is approved by the Football League.
Since agreeing to buy a 75 per cent share from current owners GFH Capital, the Italian has effectively been bankrolling the club, funding loan moves for Jack Butland and Connor Wickham as well as paying wages.
The Football League is yet to approve the takeover, however, and though the board is due to meet on Thursday to discuss the matter, a decision may not be made until after a court case next week in Italy revolving around alleged non-payment of import duty. Cellino denies any wrongdoing.
The ongoing uncertainty at the club was reflected on the pitch on Tuesday in a 4-2 Sky Bet Championship loss to Reading.
Beleaguered manager Brian McDermott fears uncertainty surrounding the club's ownership is affecting his players who have now conceded nine goals in the last two home games.
McDermott's own position may be in jeopardy following the poor run of results, and given that the Italian, Cellino, has already tried to sack him in January.
Jade Etherington and guide Caroline Powell have won silver in the women's slalom for visually impaired athletes at the Winter Paralympics in Sochi.
Stoke City winger Brek Shea has been speaking about the incident involving him and Barnsley fans that occurred at the end of what has proven to be his last game on loan with the Sky Bet Championship club, suggesting it has been "blown out of proportion".
Shea is alleged to have made an offensive hand gesture during heated exchanges between the Tykes' players and their travelling supporters following their 5-0 loss at Huddersfield on March 1.
Barnsley subsequently issued a formal apology on their official website and on Monday, they announced Shea had returned to Stoke - even though his loan stint, which began in January, had been scheduled to last until April 3.
Two days after the incident, the 24-year-old United States international wrote on Twitter "Dunno what ppl are talking about", but last Friday he posted a series of messages in which he said he would like to "unreservedly apologise" for his actions.
And talking about the matter to Sky Sports News on Tuesday, Shea said: "I went over to stop a player from doing something he shouldn't and I think I ended up losing my head for a split second at one individual.
"I meant no disrespect to the fans. But I think it got blown out of proportion.
"It is in the past, though, and I'm here at Stoke and happy to be back.
"I said I was sorry and donated some money (to a Barnsley hospice), which hopefully does some good.
"Fans all the time say things but players just have to take it and I think that comes with our job I guess. But sometimes it is unfair."
Pardew, who has also been fined £100,000 and given a formal warning by his club, said he will accept the latest punishment.
The Newcastle manager said in a statement released by his club: "As I have made clear, I deeply regret the incident and again wholeheartedly apologise to all parties for my conduct, which I understand was not acceptable.
"I will accept the punishment handed down by the FA today. My focus now turns to preparing the team for this weekend's game against Fulham and finishing the season as strongly as possible."
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been given a seven-match ban - and will be barred from entering stadiums for the first three games - after headbutting Hull midfielder David Meyler.
The sanction was imposed by an independent regulatory commission after Pardew had admitted a misconduct charge, the Football Association announced.
He was also fined £60.000 and warned as to his future conduct after the incident during Newcastle's 4-1 win at Hull on March 1.
A statement from the FA read: "Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will serve a seven-match suspension with immediate effect, subject to any appeal, after he admitted an FA misconduct charge.
"An independent regulatory commission today [Tuesday 11 March 2014] ruled the first three matches imposed are a stadium ban with the remaining four a touchline ban."
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been handed a seven-match suspension for his headbutt on Hull's David Meyler, the Football Association has announced.
