Yesterday Croatia claimed its first ever medal at the Winter Paralympics when Bruno Bosnjak won bronze after finishing third in the snowboarding event.

The race was twice as long, and Sudbury's Collin Cameron was just as good, as the Paralympian claimed his second bronze medal of the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games on March 15.

Canada's curling team, which includes Marie Wright of Moose Jaw, has won bronze at the Pyeongchang Paralympics. Americans Noah Elliot and Mike Schultz won gold and silver, respectively.

It's not the medal the Canadians were hoping for, as Canada had swept the gold medals since the sport made its Paralympic debut in 2006 in Turin. He did not start his final run.

Ideson's rink rallied for another comeback win - this time against the Neutral Paralympic Athletes - and then held on to beat Slovakia 9-5 in the second match Wednesday. Elliott won bronze on Monday in snowboard-cross at his first Paralympics alongside US teammate Mike Schultz (St. Cloud, Minnesota), who took the win, and today won silver in his Paralympic debut.


Despite the injury, she has continued to shine on the global stage, claiming cross-country gold medals in the 1.1km sprint and today's 5km event.

The 24-year-old Narita, whose left leg was paralyzed below the knee in a training accident on a trampoline, led the field on his first run but improved in each of his two subsequent efforts for his first Paralympic gold.

"I did not think I would even be competing at this Games, and to walk away with the opportunity to be the flagbearer.it's indescribable".

Hall won gold on Saturday through his two runs totalling one minute and 36 seconds - 39 seconds ahead of second placed Arthur Bauchet of France. It will definitely take a little bit, but I feel awesome. "As an athlete, I'm happy to win the gold because it means that I can share my story with more people", Narita said. I just tried to race as fast as I could.
