South Korea's para Nordic skier Lee Jeong-min smiles after he finished the men's 12.5km sitting biathlon event at the PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games at Alpensia Biathlon Centre in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, on March 13, 2018. The event in which McKeever struck gold was the men's 20 kilometre cross-country skiing for the visually impaired.

The first US gold of these Paralympics was the first USA gold in the biathlon, with Kendall Gretsch winning the women's 6km sitting biathlon, with teammate Oksana Masters capturing the bronze.

Patmore's performance has erased fears Australia would go medal-less at a Winter Paralympics for the first time since Innsbruck, Austria in 1988. Yury Holub of Belarus won the silver medal with a time of 47 minutes, 7.5 seconds. The bronze-medal game is Friday at 11 p.m. and the gold-medal game is Saturday at 11 p.m.




McKeever reached the podium by one minute, 26.5 seconds.

In sledge hockey, Canada improved to 3-0 with a dominating 8-0 win over Norway. Canada will now play in the semi-final on Wednesday.

Simon Patmore has become Australia's first Paralympic snowboard medalist, after claiming the country's first gold medal in 16 years.

"Over the next week as Canada competes in the games, please let our athletes feel the support let them hear our cheers", said Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture. They are behind the United States (15 medals), France and the Ukraine (nine medals each).
