Taras Rad brings wins fourth gold medal for Ukraine at Winter Paralympics

There are six major Blind Ice Hockey tournaments in North America

Davenport native Kevin McKee had two assists as the U.S. Paralympic sled hockey team beat the Czech Republic 10-0 in its second preliminary round game of the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in Gangneung, South Korea.

Amy Purdy, who initially gained fame with her bronze-medal winning performance at the Sochi Games in 2014, took home a silver medal in this year's snowboard cross and will compete Friday in the banked slalom event.

Hall was sitting seventh after the Super G but he found another gear to rocket up the leaderboard.

"I'm still in a bit of shock, " he said after the event last night. "He is so fast that we have to drive a really hard pace into the wind because we know he is always going to be there, so it is hard for us to keep the pace going", Nishikawa said in a press release this morning.

"To come from seventh into first for a little and finish third is remarkable". "I now hope (the organising committee) can increase the sales target further with six days of competition to go". "We'll take this with both hands for sure".

He eventually finished behind Russian skier Aleksei Bugaev, who won gold under a neutral flag, and France's Arthur Bauchet who grabbed silver.

Selling for more than $6,000, Schultz's creation is used by numerous world's top amputee athletes in extreme sports, including many of his Paralympic competitors.

"It was super good today".

North Korea's Ma You-chol and Kim Jong-hyon competed in the men's 1.5km cross-country sprint at the special invitation of the International Paralympic Committee. Times from the two runs are added together to determine the final order based on ascending total time. The number of gates is determined by the vertical drop of the course.

Hall will race for another medal on Wednesday in the slalom event.
