BRONZE Medal Alert - ADAM HALL at PyeongChang 2018



With Canada off to a rousing start at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games by earning seven medals over the weekend, Canadians were celebrating and offering their support back in Victoria.

Alpine skiers and biathletes return to action where more medals will be up for grabs while round-robin play continues in wheelchair curling.

France and the Neutral Paralympic Athletes (NPA) tied for second place with two gold and one silver medals apiece, reports Xinhua news agency. All of Saturday's medals came from skiing - alpine skiing and biathlon - on which six gold medals were up for grabs respectively.

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. The U.S. duo of Daniel Cnossen and Kendall Gretsch, which had never won a race before, both claimed gold in the sitting event.

The 18-year-old won bronze in the women's downhill standing event with a time of 1:34.60 seconds.

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

Stephanie Jallen of the US competes in the Standing Women's Super-G in Alpine Skiing at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre at the Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Sunday, March 11, 2018.

One day after winning the men's sitting downhill, Andrew Kurka captured silver in the sitting super-G. Marie and guide Jack Leitch won the first Canadian gold in the visually impaired downhill. Ramsay won bronze in the super-G while Jepsen's bronze in the downhill was Canada's first medal of the Games.
