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.

Slovakia's Petra Smarzova competes in the Alpine Skiing Standing Women's Super Combined at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre in Jeongseon, South Korea, at the Pyeongchang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.

"When you guys say first gold for a while and first male athlete for Summer and Winter, I'm really proud", Patmore said after his race. Schultz himself has won snowboarding gold already, and his teammates have medaled five times themselves. I couldn't be more pumped. Kennedy will get his first taste of gold at Wednesday's medal ceremony. Looking for breaking news, videos, Olympic and Paralympic team bios all at your fingertips?

Adam Hall couldn't find the words to describe getting back on the podium again, eight years after Vancouver.

This is Peters' last event at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter and he will return to New Zealand triumphant, with a fantastic bronze medal won in Saturday's Men's Downhill Sitting event. "This is my first Paralympics and I am just so happy to have won a medal", said Wilkie, who found comfort racing in the final alongside two other Canadian women.

After previously ignoring the Summer Paralympics, swimmer Rim Ju Song became North Korea's first Paralympian at London in 2012, followed by two more athletes at Rio 2016. After four days of play, Canada's curlers now have a 5-2 record.

"It was such a big honor because I was a cauldron lighter, not just one of the torchbearers", she said. "I've got awesome coaches and teammates that have gotten me through this whole process and have made it an unbelievable career". A total of 30 Russian Para athletes and six sighted guides who help visually impaired athletes are competing in PyeongChang.
