On the ninth and final day of competition at the Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, Team USA athletes competed in alpine skiing, Nordic skiing and sled hockey. In alpine skiing, the women's slalom wrapped up competition while Nordic concluded with the cross-country mixed and open relays. The U.S. sled hockey team concluded the Paralympics with a bang, defeating Canada 2-1 for gold behind Declan Farmer's two goals. And finally, PyeongChang bid adieu to the Games at the Closing Ceremony, where Team USA was led by flag bearer Oksana Masters.
