Mark Arendz waved to the crowd as he walked on to the stage to receive his silver medal for the men's biathlon 7.5-kilometre standing race on Monday at the Sochi Paralympics.

Arendz, of Hartsville, P.E.I., was joined by gold medallist Vladislav Lekomtcev and bronze medallist Azat Karachurin, both of Russia, for the victory ceremony at the Paralympic Medals Plaza.

The medal was Arendz's first of these Games but is not expected to be his last. He competes next on Tuesday in the men's 12.5K biathlon standing, beginning at 5:20 a.m. ET (and streaming live on cbc.ca/paralympics.)
