Dino Sokolovic has claimed Croatia's first ever gold medal at a Winter Paralympics with a sensational win in the Men's Slalom - Sitting event at the 2018 Winter Paralympics in PyeongChang, South Korea today.

She will lead the 74-member USA team at the Ceremony, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow at the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium. "I'm super pumped and excited to share the podium with my teammate again".

Natalie Wilkie, the youngest member of Canada's Paralympic contingent, took top spot in the women's 7.5 km standing event to earn her first-career gold.

"After a life-changing accident, it puts new perspective on life", he said.

The 28-year-old, a victor of five medals at the Games, including two golds, was chosen by a vote of fellow American athletes. I just tried to race as fast as I could.

Wright's story and sunny demeanour in Pyeongchang has made her a hero with fans back home. "I want to get a gold medal for a lot of these guys, I know they deserve it".

Bad Boy was a close family, "brothers and sisters by love and not blood", Joyce said, and Mack was an integral part of that. Craig sadly suffered from heart failure and passed away near his home in SC on March 12, Alvin revealed to the Daily News .

The 57-year-old from Moose Jaw, Sask., was driving on a dirt road in 1988 when she swerved to avoid a grain truck that had stopped suddenly with no brake lights.

Two of Wright's daughters, Kyla and Tara, made the trip to South Korea, and were among the several dozen noisy Canadian flag-waving fans in the rink.

The Canadian wheelchair curling rink successfully regrouped to win bronze against host South Korea following a contentious semifinal loss to eventual champion China. "We put ourselves in a good position to medal and we played well". I certainly wouldn't have known that I'd come here and win the medals that I have.

Canada has the same number of victories and defeats, but South Korea has a tiebreaking edge with a better head-to-head record.

Canada had 24 medals with one day remaining, topping the previous best of 19 won in Vancouver in 2010, and crushing the 16 medals from four years ago in Sochi.

The Chinese beat Norway for gold later Saturday.
