All in all, with its six medals - one gold, three silver medals, and two bronze medals - Belarus is now on the 9th place in the medal standings.

Lee finished 11th in the men's 7.5-kilometer sitting biathlon - his first event at the Winter Paralympics - on Saturday and 10th in the men's 15km sitting cross-country skiing the next day.

Cnossen, a former U.S Navy Seal, came first in the men's sit ski.

Also like Saturday, fellow American Oksana Masters took the bronze.

"It is fantastic news that Pyeongchang 2018 has now sold a record number of tickets to the Paralympic Winter Games", IPC President Andrew Parsons said in a statement.


Ramsay and Jepsen look to add another medal in the women's standing category. The Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., native already captured gold in the downhill race but looks to rebound after failing to finish the super-G competition. The silver and the bronze went to Germany and Canada each.

The 18-year-old won bronze in the women's downhill standing event with a time of 1:34.60 seconds. Marie and guide Jack Leitch won the first Canadian gold in the visually impaired downhill.

As the Winter Paralympics kicked off its 10-day run Friday, National Smile Team, affiliated with the Visit Korea Committee, hosted a campaign for the public near Gangneung Station on Saturday.

Switzerland's Theo Gmur took his first Paralympic gold in the men's standing skiing, and USA skier Andrew Kurka, the reigning downhill world champion, won the race in the men's sitting category.

The 17 goals are tied for the second-most scored by Canada since Hockey Canada took over the sledge (now para) program in 2004.
