Lancaster's Adam Page goes for third Paralympic gold medal

Korea Aims for Top-10 Finish at Pyeongchang Paralympics

A general view of the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games at the Pyeongchang Stadium, South Korea, March 9, 2018.

Medals were up for grabs in alpine skiing and biathlon.

The Olympics-driven detente has triggered a flurry of diplomatic activity, which culminated in the shock announcement last week that US President Donald Trump had agreed to meet the North's leader Kim Jong Un. She was 38.5 seconds off the gold-winning performance.

It was Farkasova's sixth Paralympic gold, and she hailed her victory as "great, amazing".

The 36-year-old from St. Cloud, Minn., will make his Paralympic debut after learning to snowboard in 2011. Cnossen is a former Navy Seal who lost both legs in an explosion in Afghanistan.

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.

Just like February's Olympic Games, the cold weather has been a nagging problem for the Paralympics, and it has already caused cancellations of official training session.

The first events will take place Saturday, with athletes competing in downhill skiing and biathlon.

Lukyanenko's teammate Anatoliy Kovalevsky added bronze in the men's biathlon 7.5 km sprint for the visually impaired.

North Korean officials said they do "not accept the fact that Dokdo can not be marked due to political issues held in Korea", Reuters reported.

As the ceremony started, spectators were treated to fireworks and a lights show before the athletes' march, which was followed by the Paralympics flag-raising and lighting of the flame.

A record 48 countries are taking part in the Games.

The rapid inter-Korean detente began at last month's Winter Olympics.

A cheery mood coursed through festivities that lacked the tension of the 2014 Sochi Paralympics, when Ukraine sent only its flag-bearer to the opening ceremony to protest Russia's intervention in the Crimean Peninsula, or the undertones of the 2016 Rio Paralympics, which were stained by financial turmoil and meager ticket sales.
