Paralympic Recap Day 4

Hudak races to sixth-place finish  

Just one day after her bronze medal finish in the women’s standing 15-kilometre cross country event, Prince Albert’s Brittany Hudak finished sixth in the women’s standing biathlon 10-kilometre course.

She completed the race with a time of 37 minutes and 43.1 seconds, one minute behind Ukraine’s Iryna Bui who captured gold. 

Fellow Canadian Emily Young finished eighth. 

Men’s Para hockey recover  

Under the helm of head coach Ken Babey of Saskatoon, the men’s Para hockey team bounced back from being shut out by the United States, to blank South Korea 6-0 on Day 4. 

Canada’s James Dunn posted a hat-trick, with teammates Liam Hickey, Billy Bridges and captain Tyler McGregor also putting the puck past the posts to lead the team to victory over South Korea.  

This puts Canada in second place behind the United States in group A with both teams clinching a semifinal spot. The date and opponent Canada will face in the semifinals is still to be determined.
