The 30-year-old finished seventh of the 32 competitors in the earlier men's super-G standing event, but after finishing third in the men's slalom standing event, he leapt up the aggregate table to take the bronze medal. It also marked the 11th gold medal of his career. "We have jousted back and forth for wins over the past few years, he had the start on me but I played it patient and when I saw the opening I passed him and took him in the fastest portion of the course". I had a really good training day yesterday, and I brought that into 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". I am really happy with my race and it is another medal for Canada.

The skier should add to his medal total in Pyeongchang, as the 20K was just his first of three events. According to the organizing committee, ticket sales surpassed 320-thousand as of Monday, topping the 316,200 tickets sold for the whole of the 2014 Sochi Winter Paralympics.
