The youngest athlete of the Ukrainian national team, Taras Rad, has won the fourth gold medal for Ukraine at the XII Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, according to the website of the competition.

With the 17 goals, Canada has now scored 991 since Hockey Canada took over the sledge hockey program in 2004.

Patmore easily beat Italian Manuel Pozzerle in the two-man final of the upper limb disability class on Monday to win Australia's first medal of the Games. The record is 18. He had a hat trick before the game was 10 minutes old.

McGregor again scored the victor on a power play at 3:59 of the first period.

"It was a balanced team effort and I like the way the guys were unselfish, with nearly every goal having two assists with it". His seven points are one behind the co-leaders, Bryan Sholomicki and Adam Dixon. Collin Cameron of Canada took bronze, which was also unpredicted.

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

After years of training and rehabilitation, Cnossen was able to compete in the Sochi 2014 Paralympics with the assistance of prosthetics.

The semifinals are at 11 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday.

Ukraine, Canada, Germany, Slovakia, and Switzerland each won a gold on the first day to join the three winter sports powerhouses atop the medal table.
