PARALYMPICS ROUND UP FOR DAY 3 Updated: 2018-03-12 18:13:07 KST

Good evening, I'm Lee Ji-won, and throughout this week, I'll be bringing you the latest on the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympics.
With last Friday's opening ceremony, we are now on day three of the games, and the excitement is building as Team Korea is grabbing more wins, on top of the country's first medal over the weekend with Sin Eui-hyun grabbing the bronze medal in one of the cross-country skiing events.

In wheelchair curling, Team Korea's 5th preliminary match against Germany is currently underway. If Korea manages to win, they'll be undefeated and go level with China at the top of the round-robin group.
The five-man mixed team locked in its fourth victory against Canada earlier this morning.
The two sides battled back and forth, but with Canada failing to earn enough points after the eighth end, Team Korea won the game 7 to 5.
The victory comes after Team Korea defeated the USA, Slovakia, and the Neutral Paralympic Athletes from Russia over the weekend.

Over at Pyeongchang's Jeongseon Alpine Centre, four Korean snowboarders competed in snowboard cross on Monday.
Of Korea's lower-limb impaired riders, only Kim Yun-ho managed to get through the qualification round, but he failed to move on to the next round.
For those with upper limb impairments, Korea's Park Su-hyeok finished 21st out of 22 and Park Hang-seung was disqualified for missing a gate.

Let's now look at some of the standout events for Tuesday.
Sin Eui-hyun will continue his hunt for medals in the men's sitting 12.5-kilometer biathlon race, together with Lee Jeong-min.
There's also gold up for grabs in the alpine skiing men and women's super combined, with the games starting from the morning.
And Team Korea's para ice hockey players will also see if they can continue their winning ways on Tuesday afternoon in their third preliminary round match against the U.S..
It's likely the Koreans will secure their very first qualification for the Paralympic semi-finals.

That's it from me for now but I'll be back with more updates on the Paralympic games tomorrow.
With that let's look at the medal table for the day.
