Canadian roundup: Kurt Oatway scores more para alpine gold
Calgary skiers up Canada's medal total to 6
Calgarians Kurt Oatway and Alana Ramsay continued Canada's para alpine success on Sunday in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Oatway, 34, was golden in the men's super-G sitting race in a time of one minute 25.83 seconds to earn his first Paralympic medal.
In the women's standing super-G, 23-year-old Ramsay also reached the podium for the first time with a bronze behind France's Marie Bochet and Germany's Andrea Rothfuss.
The pair of Canadian medals brought the country's total to six through two days of competition and four of those medals have come in the para alpine discipline.
Mollie Jepsen of Whistler, B.C., who earned Canada's first medal on Day 1 with a bronze in the downhill event, finished fourth.
Toronto's Erin Latimer and Mel Pemble of Victoria B.C., finished ninth and 11th, respectively. Montreal's Frederique Turgeon did not finish.
On the heels of his gold-medal performance in Saturday's visually impaired downhill event, Mac Marcoux of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., fell while making a wide turn in the super-G and did not finish.
