PyeongChang 2018 sets Winter Paralympics ticket sales record

Winter Paralympics: Simon Patmore wins gold for Australia in snowboard cross

There remains availability for all sessions, including the medal matches for wheelchair curling and ice hockey, as well as the Closing Ceremony on Sunday (March 18).

In particular, Ukrainian Paralympic athletes have won two gold, two silver and two bronze medals, according to the website of the Paralympic Winter Games.

Hall entered the slalom in seventh place after a tough start in the Super G, but roared home to finish third overall with a combined time of two minutes and 15 seconds this morning.

McKeever now holds a remarkable 11 gold medals, three ahead of the nearest Canadian Winter Paralympic athlete, Lauren Woolstencroft, with eight.

Six years after winning bronze at the London Paralympics, as a 200m sprinter, Patmore claimed gold in the men's snowboard cross - defeating Italian Manuel Pozzerle in the final.

Hall finished behind Russian skier Aleksei Bugaev who won gold under a neutral flag and France's Arthur Bauchet who grabbed silver.

Nishikawa said following the race they made a decision to implement this unique strategy as a way to keep up a higher speed with McKeever throughout the entirety of the race.

The 2018 Winter Paralympics feature almost 600 athletes from 49 countries, competing in six sports.

Hall's bronze takes New Zealand's medals total to two, following Corey Peters' bronze on Saturday in the men's downhill sitting event. "He is so fast that we have to drive a really hard pace into the wind because we know he is always going to be there", said Nishikawa.

"I now hope Pyeongchang2018 can increase the sales target further with six days of competition still to go". "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".
