Hall wins bronze
Otago’s Kiwi Para skier Adam Hall won a bronze medal in the men’s super combined at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. This takes New Zealand to two medals overall, following Corey Peters’ bronze on Saturday in the men’s downhill sitting event. This is New Zealand’s 30th winter Paralympic medal. Hall set the seventh fastest time overall amongst a field of 32 Para skiers in the Super-G. Then in the men’s slalom standing Hall set a very quick combined time of 2:15.32, to take the fastest overall time. He held this for several more competitors before slipping down into silver and then finally bronze, 4.76sec behind the gold medallist Aleksei Bugaev.
