Mark Arendz to be Canada's flagbearer at Paralympic closing ceremony

South Korean wheelchair curlers celebrate after beating China 7-6 in a round-robin match at the Pyeong Chang Winter Paralympics at Gangneung Curling Centre in Gangneung Gangwon Province

Canada's previous best Paralympic performance was the 19 medals won in 2010 in Vancouver. 'Of course I would have liked to have had more time to prepare and I am not as fit as I could be, but I feel good, ' she told the Volkskrant before the games.

The room was filled with excited cheers and deafening applause as Wilkie came upon the finish line with a clear lead on the competition.

Great Britain's trio of snowboarders fell short in landing a medal on the seventh day of the Pyeongchang Paralympic Winter Games.

Paralympic medalist Mark Arendz says ever since he was seven years old and had a "real eye-opening experience of what community could mean", he's been determined to give back to that community. "I wasn't really thinking about where I was in order, I was just proud of my riding, that I stood it up and was fast".

Hudak, who was born missing part of her left arm, was introduced to skiing by Sochi teammate Colette Bourgonje, after Bourgonje spotted her working in a Canadian Tire store in her hometown when Hudak was 18. Ihor Reptyukh was the fifth first-day medal victor, nabbing a bronze in the men's 7.5-km standing.

After Arendz missed the top of the Paralympic medal podium four years ago in Sochi, he harnessed that frustration in every training session. It was his fourth medal of these Games.

Europa League: Arsenal to face CSKA Moscow
The Europa League draw will take place at 12 midday today after the conclusion of the Champions League quarter-final draw. Arsenal beat AC Milan 3-1 on Thursday, for a 5-1 aggregate win, to reach their first European quarter-final since 2010.

The Chinese team then displayed their stunning form as Chen, the third player, made a precise draw around six guards to sit in the four-foot as shot stone, which Norway failed to clear with its last two attempts, awarding China its first-ever gold medal in the Winter Paralympic Games. "I've seen the Maple Leaf on that podium a few times now with teammates, but to finally be up there myself with that anthem, that's going to be an awesome feeling". Before Shin's gold, South Korea won two silvers and one bronze.

Canada is guaranteed another medal Sunday when the hockey team battles the rival Americans for gold.

It is Coury's first medal of the Paralympics. His gold is Japan's second at the games.

"As a kid, I had an accident on a small farm in Prince Edward Island and now tomorrow night, I'll be a flag bearer at the Paralympics and I hope my journey can inspire everyone", said Arendz, 28, in a phone interview Saturday with CBC.

Friday he did just that.
