Competing in his second Paralympic Games with McKeever, Nishikawa started the race with the veteran as they jumped out to an early lead at the first checkpoint and never looked back.

Fast forward to the second run, the Men's Slalom Standing and Hall set a very quick combined time of 2:15.32, to take the fastest overall time.

Ukraine came fourth in the last Winter Paralympics, held in Sochi, Russia in 2014, when it won five gold, nine silver, and 11 bronze medals (25 total). Swiss alpine skier Theo Gmur won the gold medal, while Canada's Alexis Guimond finished third.

Australia has claimed its first Winter Paralympics gold medal in 16 years with Simon Patmore taking out the snowboard cross in PyeongChang. "I think we had a plan to ski comfortably into it and try and build towards the end, and I think I built too much in the middle".

Ramsay was disappointed with her result in the women's downhill event the day before, where she missed the podium by just one spot.

"I love being part of a team in the military, and when I became injured I was looking to seek that out again", Cnossen said Saturday at the games.

Nishikawa said following the race they chose to implement this unique strategy as a way to keep up a higher speed with McKeever throughout the entirety of the race.

However, the Queenslander is now only the sixth athlete to compete in both Summer and Winter Paralympic Games - and joins Jess Gallagher as the only other duel medallist.

The United States, undefeated and unscored on in three games during Group B play, faces Italy at 7 a.m. Thursday.

Also Monday, Canada wrapped up preliminary para-ice hockey action with an 8-0 victory over Norway.
