Durango's Brittani Coury wins snowboard silver at Paralympic Games

The home crowd saw their historic moment when sit skier Sin Eui Hyun won South Korea's first-ever Winter Paralympic gold medal from the men's 7.5km cross-country.

Throughout the Games, Masters has had to overcome a serious injury to her right elbow that she incurred just over three weeks ago.

This brings the close of New Zealand's efforts at the games in PyeongChang, giving them a total of three medals - one gold and two bronze. "It was so good, I'm so proud of her".

Host South Korea won a bronze medal in the ice sledge hockey, sealing its first Paralympic medal in the sport. The American men will play in the gold-medal game tonight against Canada in an attempt to win their third straight Paralympic title and fourth overall (2002, 2010, 2014).

Masters' five-medal haul in Pyeongchang has increased her Paralympic count to eight between Nordic skiing and rowing. The Neutral Paralympic Athletes also have 24 medals.

Six more medals were won in biathlon on the fourth day with 18-year-old Taras Rad demonstrating extreme competitiveness, overcoming American Daniel Cnossen in the men's 12.5-km sitting event, gaining time in his final turns and shooting a ideal 20 for 20, to win the gold medal by 1:01.7 seconds. The 2018 Winter Paralympics closing ceremony will take place on 18 March.

Jeremy Corbyn: Salisbury attack 'evidence points towards Russia'
JEREMY CORBYN's spokesman yesterday cast doubt on intelligence service claims that Russian Federation was responsible for the poisoning of Sergei Skripal.

"That.7 has been driving my training for the last four years, and finally to put it together here, to get that gold and by a fair margin too, that means everything, everything's come together finally", he said.

"It's so surreal to think that I'll be carrying the nation's flag and representing all of Team USA", Masters said. Benjamin Daviet of France took the silver in 43:50.5, while Norway's Nils-Erik Ulset was third (44:06.7).

"That completes the set for biathlon".

The Belarusian biathlon team took fourth place in the medla table for biathlon in Pyeongchang (one gold, two silver, three bronze medals), trailing only Ukraine (14 medals), Russian Federation (11), and the US (7). "The first gold, that means everything to me".

Canada also won bronze in wheelchair curling.
