Kurka ends medal streak by placing 7th in Paralympics super combined

Kurka ends medal streak by placing 7th in Paralympics super combined

Don't blink or you will miss them, the elite skiers and snowboarders at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympics.

Mike Schultz of St. Cloud pulled off that unlikely trifecta on Monday, taking the gold in snowboard cross at the Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, after carrying the ceremonial flag last week. He's so fast, and we have to drive a really hard pace and into the wind, and so we're trying to give her as hard as we can. "I knew that if I just kept the tempo up, I could potentially do it". "Because I've never raced in a super combined, the expectations were quite low, which I think took the pressure off". "I wanted to believe in myself and shine in the moment, and to finish off well, was just a perk to my athletic career".

On Wednesday, South Korean President Moon Jae-in personally thanked the athletes and told the delegation that the South "would also like to visit the North" for future sporting events, Yonhap reported.

"I know what it's like".




It has been a total team effort on the sheet so far from Mark Ideson, Ina Forrest, Dennis Thiessen, Marie Wright and alternate James Anseeuw, who need one more win to secure a playoff spot in wheelchair curling.

Schultz came back from an early fall in his first run to beat defending world champion Chris Vos from the Netherlands in the finals. Down 5-1 after four ends to China, the Canadians then scored seven unanswered points to take the 8-5 victory.

The Dunedin-born skier has been a member of the Cardrona New Zealand national adaptive ski team since 2005, and divides his training between Winter Park (United States) and Cardrona. "We are competing against each other, but we are also helping each other".

Canadian Paralympians were front and centre at the Legislature in Victoria.
