President Moon Jae-in offered encouragement to North Korean athletes and officials participating in the PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games. 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.
Marcoux rebounded from two non-finishes in his past two events to capture a bronze medal in the giant slalom, his second podium performance of the Games.
Hall finished behind Russian skier Aleksei Bugaev who won gold under a neutral flag and France's Arthur Bauchet who grabbed silver.
"I'll take any colour, any colour at all. Both Russ and Graham did such a good job today that I was hurting by the end, so it was thanks to them that we got this done". "Unfortunately, I had the one miss and it made it a tight and interesting race". "I think we had a plan to ski comfortably into it and try and build towards the end, and I think I built too much in the middle". Nishikawa traded off with Kennedy just before the 10-kilometre mark who raced with McKeever through the midway point of the race before Nishikawa re-joined the legend for the final five-kilometre lap. I know everything is going well.
"It was an fantastic comeback after my first run, to finish a really solid slalom run".
"That one was really hard", said McKeever, following his gold medal victory. In the sixth end, South Korea surrendered four points and made a decision to forfeit the match. China had entered the match-up as the only undefeated team in the competition so far. "It's a pretty cool thing to be part of".
Rob Armstrong and Summerside's Billy Bridges led the way with two goals apiece and helped Canada's Paralympic hockey team to an 8-0 win over Norway on Monday at the Paralympics in South Korea.
