This is the first time that South Korea took gold at the Winter Paralympics ever.

Hall adds to his bronze medal he won earlier in the week in the super combined and also the top honour of the event, the Whang Youn Dai achievement award.

This brings the close of New Zealand's efforts at the games in PyeongChang, giving them a total of three medals - one gold and two bronze.

Similar to her first run in snowboard cross, Coury, 31, fell in her first run Friday, but she shook off the spill. "I didn't even know I was the leader until I reached the finish line". The accident claimed the life of his mother and two brothers. Just, personally, I had a sense of contentment that the Paralympics are going well. "And I did and I ended up with a bit of road rash". "I'm just proud of my performance and am really happy that I was able to hold it all together when it mattered most". "Eventually we broke through and got the first one and the next, and then we got rolling - and that's a good lesson going into the next game".

Canada had 24 medals with one day remaining, topping the previous best of 19 won in Vancouver in 2010, and crushing the 16 medals from four years ago in Sochi. In snowboard-cross, I did it and came home with the gold and today, I was able to chip away at my time a little bit but just wasn't quite fast enough. I certainly wouldn't have known that I'd come here and win the medals that I have.
