She won two bronze medals in Slalom at the Vancouver 2010 Games and the GS at Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games. Arthur Bauchet of France finished in silver medal position after being fastest in the first run of the Super-G, earlier today.

The Canadian team chose to split the guide duties during the race between Nishikawa and secondary guide Russell Kennedy.

He tied for bronze in the men's 1.5-kilometre cross-country sprint standing final with Finland's Ilkka Tuomisto. The win takes Patmore into the upper realm of Australian sport as he is the first man in Australian sporting history to win a medal at both the Summer and Winter Games.

Canada outshot Norway 27-5 including 14-0 in the second period, and went 2-for-4 on the power play.

Brian McKeever of Calgary, Alberta won his 11th career gold medal at the Paralympic Winter Games on Sunday evening (Monday in South Korea) at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

And the U.S. Nordic team continued its outstanding showing these Games with Dan Cnossen winning bronze alongside Soule for his fourth medal of PyeongChang.


It is New Zealand's 30th winter Paralympic medal and New Zealand's 220th Paralympic medal overall, summer and winter.

McKeever, who also led the Canadian team into the Games as the opening ceremonies flag bearer, has won seven straight individual Paralympic races dating back to the 2006 Games in Italy.

Among the three most well attended sessions so far was yesterday morning's wheelchair curling, which had an attendance of 86 per cent for South Korea's match against Canada.

"That one was really hard", said McKeever, following his gold medal victory.

Canada went 3-0 in its round-robin pool, outscoring the opposition 35-0 in the process.
