Medals will be up for grabs in the men's slalom and cross-country skiing while Canada also looks to move closer to locking up a semifinal spot in wheelchair curling.

Gretsch overcame numerous challenges on the course, including three falls, to finish within 12 seconds of the podium.

Kurka, 26, placed seventh in the super combined, an event that consists of a super-G run followed by a single slalom run.
