Mike Shea competes in the adaptive banked slalom final at the Dew Tour on Dec. 15, 2017 in Breckenridge, Colorado. 


For the second day in a row, the U.S. Paralympic Nordic Skiing Team came away with a medal haul in PyeongChang.

Kendall Gretsch proved her gold medal in the sitting biathlon sprint on Saturday was no fluke, winning a second gold medal in the women’s sitting 12-kilometer cross-country race on Sunday. Teammate Oksana Masters took the bronze medal, adding to her silver in biathlon sprint and Dan Cnossen, who also won gold in biathlon sprint Saturday to give the U.S. the golden sweep, won the silver medal in the men’s sitting 15-kilometer.

Alpine skier Andrew Kurka also won his second medal in as many days, taking the silver in sitting super-G. The U.S. maintains its lead in the medal count with nine medals (four golds, three silvers, two bronzes).
