"It is fantastic news that Pyeongchang 2018 has now sold a record number of tickets to the Paralympic Winter Games", IPC President Andrew Parsons said in a statement.

At the Winter Paralympics in PyeongChang, the Belarusian athlete Svetlana Sakhanenko claimed the gold in the 15km Freestyle ski race for athletes with visual impairment.

Alexis Guimond leads a trio of Canadians in the men's standing category (10:50 p.m. ET). All six of Canada's biathletes will be competing - Mark Arendz, Collin Cameron, Sebastien Fortier, Derek Zaplotinsky, Brittany Hudak, and Emily Young.

More than 600 athletes are set to compete in the 2018 Winter Games, including 44 percent more female athletes than competed in the 2014 games.

Canada's wheelchair curlers will be back at the rink for two matches as round-robin action continues.

Corbin Watson (Kingsville, Ont.) and Dominic Larocque (Quebec City, Que.) stopped one shot each to share the shutout for Canada, which finished with a massive 45-2 advantage in shots on goal.

Canada will play either the United States or South Korea in a cross-over semifinal on Thursday.

The veteran forward scored five goals, including both game-winners, as the Canadian para hockey team won its first two games on the weekend.

Patmore's performance has erased fears Australia would go medal-less at a Winter Paralympics for the first time since Innsbruck, Austria in 1988.

Schultz also led the USA delegation at the Opening Ceremony as the flag bearer on Friday.
