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. - Mark Ideson on the win over the U.S.

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.

With Whitehorse's Graham Nishikawa and Russell Kennedy of Canmore splitting the race as his guide, McKeever won a Canadian record 14th Paralympic medal and 11th gold.

Ticket sales for Pyeongchang 2018 have reached 320,531, breaking the record for the most ever sold for a Winter Paralympic Games.


This was the third straight Paralympic Winter Games that McKeever won the gold medal in the men's 20 kilometre cross-country skiing event for the visually impaired. "I'll take any colour (medal)". "I now hope (the organizing committee) can increase the sales target further with six days of competition to go", he said. "I'm so excited to be around all of them this week and to be there cheering them on".

"I lied to him".

The indifferent treatment of the Paralympics draws a stark contrast with that of the Olympics, as major broadcasters in South Korea were seen airing the same events at the same time in a much contested ratings battle over the previous two weeks.

"I didn't snowboard as well as I know I can in that last run, that's the thing that most disappoints me".

"But he got a quick start and got out in front but he was all over the place across the course - I was trying to make a safe pass but it's just so hard and I wasn't willing to put myself on the line to try and do that".

"I knew straight away I couldn't hold an edge". Going down the hill, I could feel that confidence showing through.
