In front of a packed crowd, Canada's para-ice hockey team posted a 7-0 victory to earn the right to play for the gold medal.

New Zealand's final medal haul will be three, with another alpine skier, Corey Peters, having snared a downhill sitting bronze. He did not start his final run.

"2007, after my accident, I couldn't imagine being in this position", Ideson said.

Brittani Coury (Durango, Colorado) slid across the line in her third run in the women's LL2 class to clock her fastest run of the day and secure the silver medal. "And this is the fifth medal at these Paralympics so my statistics just went out the window". I love snowboarding, I've always loved snowboarding, and to just be here, enjoying it and having fun is just fantastic.

"The message I want to share is I'm hoping that anyone in Canada can look at the performances this week, not only from myself but the entire nordic team, the entire team Canada here in Pyeongchang and see what is possible", Arendz said. Just, personally, I had a sense of contentment that the Paralympics are going well.

"I thought our best period of the whole game was our first period and that set the stage for the rest of the game". "I just wanted to be down at the bottom as fast as I could, and it actually paid off".

Fierce competition in the toy segment ultimately led to its demise, including competition from Walmart , Target and Amazon . Its scale gave it leverage with toy sellers and it disrupted general merchandise stores and mom-and-pop shops.

"We were tight early, the first five or six shots we took missed the net", added Canada captain Greg Westlake, of Toronto. "I had no other plan but to push hard and do my best, and I'm happy that I got a good result". It's not going anywhere.

"It's a great group of curlers". To come out and showcase our abilities instead of our disabilities and at the level of riding we're able to do that through the avenue of snowboarding, I'm so proud of my sport.
