Taras Rad brings wins fourth gold medal for Ukraine at Winter Paralympics

With the gold medal, McKeever surpassed para-alpine skier Lana Spreeman for the most all-time medals won by a Canadian Paralympian at the Winter Games. Andrea Rothfuss of Germany won the silver medal with a time of 2:33.07.

Yury Holub was second in 47:07.5, while Thomas Clarion of France took the bronze in 47:24.4. She also won bronze in cycling at the 2016 Rio Paralympics after she switched sports.

Alongside his 14th career medal, McKeever was also selected as flag bearer for the Paralympic opening ceremony earlier in the week and will now turn his attention to the 1.5 km sprint event on Wednesday (March 14).

"My qualifying run was a little rough", he said, "but I was able to refocus, put the hammer down, just keep winning all the way through our brackets and finally come home with a gold".
