Russian Athlete Rumyantseva Wins Gold in Ski Race at Paralympic Games

Paralympics games kicked off in South Korea as players beat their disabilities

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.

Patmore is also the first Australian para-snowboarder to win a medal at a Winter Games.

Hailing from 48 nations, plus the Neutral Paralympic Athlete delegation, athletes will contend in 80 medal events across six sports: Alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, Para ice hockey, snowboard and wheelchair curling. France won a gold medal in the men's 7.5km standing, while Ukraine dominated the vision impaired biathlon event with a gold and a bronze in the men's 7.5km.

Para athletes from Russian Federation are participating in the 2018 Paralympics in the neutral status or as the Neutral Paralympic Athletes (NPA). "During these four years, I gained enough experience".

On January 29, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) announced that it kept in force the suspension of the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) after receiving an update from the IPC Taskforce responsible for monitoring the RPC's progress in meeting the reinstatement criteria. It follows the doping scandal that broke out in 2016, when Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren claimed in his report that a total of 35 Russian Paralympic drug tests had "disappeared" over a four-year period. Ekaterina Rumyantseva won the gold medal in women's 6km standing biathlon event on Saturday, while Anna Milenina finished second to take silver.

Cross-country skier Oksana Shyshkova and her guide Vitaliy Kazakov won their second silver medal at this year's competition in the women's 15-kilometer free technique sprint for the visually impaired. Azerbaijan has yet to send Winter Paralympic athletes, and officials are now working to create the necessary infrastructure for winter sportsmen and women.

The Winter Paralympics will be held until March 18.

"We're planning to join the 2022 Winter Paralympic Games with at least one athlete", Azerbaijan Paralympic Federation Secretary-General Kamal Mammadov told Caspian News.
