Patmore's victory has been a long time coming for Australia, his gold for Australia since Michael Milton and Bart Bunting won at Salt Lake City in 2002. Cnossen was joined on the podium of the middle-distance biathlon sitting competition by USA teammate Andy Soule (Kerrville, Texas) with bronze on the fourth day of competition at Alpensia Biathlon Center. Once again, OMEGA will fulfil its role as the Official Timekeeper of the event, in which up to 670 talented athletes from 46 participating nations will compete in 80 medal events.

After a mixed start to his campaign for the 39-year-old this week, Hall found Tuesday was his day when he crossed the line with a combined time of two minutes and 15 seconds.

Hall then posted a quick combined time of 2min 14.32s after the slalom leg of the super combined and that had him in the gold medal spot for a time.

At the last winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia, Poles failed to come away with any medals.

Mark Arendz of Hartsville, P.E.I. was tongue-tied after claiming his third medal of the 2018 Paralympics, this one a photo-finish tie for bronze in the men's 1.5-kilometre cross-country sprint standing final.

President Moon Jae-in offered encouragement to North Korean athletes and officials participating in the PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games. "I now hope (the organizing committee) can increase the sales target further with six days of competition to go", he said.

Yet the result wasn't the most disappointing aspect for Pick, feeling his best race was left on the snow in the first of two events of his week. I think it's a testament to great coaching, great support, great staff. Lots of great work being done behind the scenes by so many people that you don't even see who are out here long before we even arrive at the venue. "They pushed hard and skied really well the whole way". "I had to collapse on the ground or I would have run straight into everyone". "I knew there were some exhausted guys, so I went for it from the start and tried to put some pressure on". Going down the hill, I could feel that confidence showing through.
