Belarus wins its sixth medal at Winter Paralympics in PyeongChang

A couple of mistakes in the Super G but we knew we were in the hunt.

The skier should add to his medal total in Pyeongchang, as the 20K was just his first of three events.

The team of Seo Soon-seok, Bang Min-ja, Cha Jae-goan, Jung Seung-won, Lee Dong-ha, beat Sweden 4-2 in its ninth match of the wheelchair curling competition at the PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games.

Mark Arendz won his second medal of the Games, grabbing bronze in the 12.5KM men's standing biathlon.

"I was extremely honoured with the season I had in SBX this year while finishing second overall and being able to finish sixth at the SBX Paralympic Games was a highlight". "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".

Mollie Jepsen, from Vancouver, won Canada's first medal, a bronze in the women's standing downhill and Mac Marcoux of Sault Ste. "He is so fit, so I knew it would not be a major problem". I am really happy with my race and it is another medal for Canada. "I wanted to believe in myself and shine in the moment, and to finish off well, was just a perk to my athletic career".

He continued: "So that's my events all done for the Games so I can relax a little bit and come and support Carl in the Banked Slalom on Friday and Adam in the Slalom on Saturday". 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.

"It was an unbelievable comeback after my first run, to finish a really solid slalom run". The Chinese were leading 5-1 after four ends when Canada scored seven unanswered points. "We are competing against each other, but we are also helping each other".
