Polish skier Igor Sikorski on Wednesday won the bronze in the giant slalom in Pyeongchang, the first medal for his country in the Paralympic Winter Games. Thomas Clarion of France finished third. She hopes her success will bring the Paralympic Games the same attention as the Olympics.

McKeever credited his gold medal performance to both his guides, Russell Kennedy and Graham Nishikawa.

Otago Paralympic gold medallist Adam Hall continues to make his presence felt on the world stage after "an unbelievable comeback" to win the bronze medal in the men's super combined event at the PyeongChang Paralympic Winter Games.

Pyeongchang 2018 President Lee Hee-beom added: "We are delighted with the record ticket sales that we have achieved at Pyeongchang 2018".

Patmore's victory has been a long time coming for Australia, his gold for Australia since Michael Milton and Bart Bunting won at Salt Lake City in 2002.

Canada has yet to allow a goal in the tournament while posting wins over Sweden, Italy and Norway.

Among the three most well attended sessions so far was yesterday morning's wheelchair curling, which had an attendance of 86 per cent for South Korea's match against Canada.
