Mark Arendz to be Canada's flagbearer at Paralympic closing ceremony

15 2018 shows North Korean athletes and officials who took part in the Pyeong Chang Winter Paralympics leaving a border checkpoint to return home

The Canadians have committed to a demanding fitness-first system in trying to capture the country's first Paralympic gold since 2006, and the on-ice results so far - the team outscored its opponents 35-0 in group play - speak for themselves.

Masters' five-medal haul in Pyeongchang has increased her Paralympic count to eight between Nordic skiing and rowing.

This brings the close of New Zealand's efforts at the games in PyeongChang, giving them a total of three medals - one gold and two bronze. Americans Noah Elliot and Mike Schultz won gold and silver, respectively.

There won't be a third Paralympics gold medal in the sport for Spallumcheen's Ina Forrest. Minor was sitting in third after two runs but put together a flawless final run to secure the top spot by more than half a second. The fastest timed run of the three determines the victor. When I entered the goal of the second run, the first thing that went through my head was that I would have a medal.

On seeing her US teammate Brittani Coury win her first Paralympic medal..."It was way cooler, I think, than even my own medal".

In the seventh end, the Chinese team scored two points, taking a 5-4 lead into the eighth where Norway only added one to force an extra end.

"Everyone was improving their time in their second and third runs, so I knew if I messed up on my third run I would miss the podium". "And I did and I ended up with a bit of road rash". "As an athlete, I'm happy to win the gold because it means that I can share my story with more people", Narita said. I love snowboarding, I've always loved snowboarding, and to just be here, enjoying it and having fun is just fantastic. "I just wanted to be down at the bottom as fast as I could, and it actually paid off".

Evan StrongOn the growth of the sport since Sochi and success of Team USA..."I'm not just extremely proud for Team USA, but I'm extremely proud for my sport".
