Oakville's Greg Westlake scored a power-play goal in an 8-0 win over Norway as Canada finished the round-robin with a ideal 3-0 record in Paralympic sledge hockey tournament.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - Day four of the alpine skiing competition at the Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 was highlighted by a silver-medal performance courtesy of Tyler Walker (Franconia, New Hampshire) in the men's sitting giant slalom Wednesday afternoon. "The harder you work for something, the better it feels when you finally succeed, and I did that today". The bronze was the fifth-career Paralympic medal for the 20-year-old from Sault Ste-Marie, Ont.

IPC President Andrew Parsons predicted last week that ticket sales for Pyeongchang 2018 Winter could break the Games record. He competed at the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi winning five medals.

South Korea's mixed wheelchair curling team earned its seventh win at the PyeongChang Winter Paralympics on Wednesday to close in on progression to the semifinals.

"I couldn't be more pumped", he added.

His being eligible is the reason coach Avery Johnson has Alabama back in the NCAAs and why the Crimson Tide are fun to watch. It last won two NCAA Tournament games in 1967. "I've been told that doesn't matter at all", Calipari said facetiously.


"I've been doing sports for eight years now and I've had the highs and lows", an emotional Patmore said. French skier Thomas Clarion claimed the bronze.

After previously ignoring the Summer Paralympics, swimmer Rim Ju Song became North Korea's first Paralympian at London in 2012, followed by two more athletes at Rio 2016. They both raced well, making it through the first two qualifying runs but missing out on a quarter-final spot.

"The biggest thing about coming in mid-race is I have to remember that I'm fresh and Brian has already skied 10 kilometres", said Kennedy.

He finished in 2:13.49 seconds.

"I was fortunate to grow up really liberal in that sense, taking people as individuals and not lumping people into groups". The first will be the men's 1.5 kilometre sprint for the visually impaired on Tuesday and the second will be the men's 10 kilometre event for the visually impaired on Saturday.
