"All week, every time I step on that podium, I was thinking to myself that I want to hear those words "Paralympic champion" and then my name, and then hear the anthem", Arendz said.

The home crowd saw their historic moment when sit skier Sin Eui Hyun won South Korea's first-ever Winter Paralympic gold medal from the men's 7.5km cross-country.

Six more medals were won in biathlon on the fourth day with 18-year-old Taras Rad demonstrating extreme competitiveness, overcoming American Daniel Cnossen in the men's 12.5-km sitting event, gaining time in his final turns and shooting a ideal 20 for 20, to win the gold medal by 1:01.7 seconds.

Great Britain remain on five medals with only two days of competition in Pyeongchang remaining. Forty-nine nations are represented with athletes competing in alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, para ice hockey, snowboarding and wheelchair curling. Ihor Reptyukh was the fifth first-day medal victor, nabbing a bronze in the men's 7.5-km standing. He previously delivered the host nation's first medal by taking bronze in the men's 15km cross-country skiing event. The Canadian team of Mark Ideson of Parry Sound, Ontario, Ina Forrest of Vernon, British Columbia, Dennis Thiessen of Crystal City, Manitoba and Marie Wright of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan defeated South Korea 5-3 in the bronze medal game.

He won the men's seven-point-five kilometer sitting cross-country skiing event held at the Alpensia Biathlon Centre in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province on Saturday, clocking in at 22 minutes and 28-point-40 seconds. It was his fourth medal of these Games. The Neutral Paralympic Athletes also have 24 medals.

Four-time Paralympian Tyler Walker won silver in the sitting slalom to go along with the silver he won in giant slalom earlier in the week, his first two medals ever coming at the Games. Team Ukraine captured 25 medals in both 2006 and 2014.
