Winter Paralympics: Simon Patmore wins gold for Australia in snowboard cross


Yury Holub of Belarus won the silver medal with a time of 47 minutes, 7.5 seconds.

This year's sporting action in PyeongChang is set to continue as the 12 Paralympic Winter Games get underway from March 9.

Ticket sales for the PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games have surpassed more than 320,000, a record for the most tickets sold at a Winter Paralympics, the organizers of the multisport event said Tuesday.

"I nearly undid it because the last lap was very hard to keep the pace, but good enough in the middle that we built a nice lead and then we were able to hang on". The first Aussie Paralympian gold for 16 years.

Patmore is also the first Australian para-snowboarder to win a medal at a Winter Games. Theo Gmur, who won the gold in the Men's Downhill Standing event contested by Hall on Saturday, was also an early casualty.

"I really want to show everyone that it can be done and all you have to do is put in the effort and put in the time and trust the process".

Farmer, 20, playing in his second Paralympics, is tied with teammate Brody Roybal for the most goals in the tournament with eight.

"I was there and it's been a long time", he said.

"I'll take any colour, any colour at all". Absolutely cool, calm and clinical.

He then won three consecutive qualifying finals, where riders battle the mountain in pairs, before scoring what turned out to be a comprehensive win over Italian Pozzerle in the decider.

Oksana Shyshkova, the biathlete won the fifth gold medal for Ukraine at 2018 Winter Paralympics as the National Paralympic Committee of Ukraine reported on Facebook on March 13. This is Melissa's third consecutive winter Paralympics and it's a well-deserved result.
