The National Team of Ukraine already won 15 medals: five gold, four silver and six bronze and occupies the third place in the total medal's table.

McKeever, who carried Canada's flag into Friday's opening ceremonies, crossed in a time of 46 minutes 2.4 seconds with guides Graham Nishikawa and Russell Kennedy.

Ukrainian Paralympic athletes have won two gold, two silver and two bronze medals.

The 30-year-old from Dunedin won a bronze in his Men's super combined event, which uses times from the slalom and super giant slalom, and at one stage lead the timesheets.

"I've been doing sports for eight years now and I've had the highs and lows", an emotional Patmore said.

Palmer sit-skier Andrew Kurka finished off the podium Tuesday for the first time in three races at the Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. "The harder you work for something, the better it feels when you finally succeed, and I did that today".

"My qualifying run was a little rough", he said, "but I was able to refocus, put the hammer down, just keep winning all the way through our brackets and finally come home with a gold".

He competed in Torino 2006, Vancouver 2010 - where he won a gold medal in the standing slalom - and Sochi 2014. A couple of mistakes in the Super G but we knew we were in the hunt. It is a technical event with a longer course and fewer gates than the slalom. "I now hope POCOG can increase the sales target further with six days of competition still to go".
