Fans were allowed to display Russian flags at last month's Olympic Games

American Mike Minor won the gold with a best run of 50.77 seconds.

It has been a total team effort on the sheet so far from Mark Ideson, Ina Forrest, Dennis Thiessen, Marie Wright and alternate James Anseeuw, who need one more win to secure a playoff spot in wheelchair curling.

Athletes are back in Pyeongchang, South Korea as the 2018 Winter Paralympics are well underway.

The 7.5km gold was Sin's second medal at the PyeongChang Paralympics. It was a close race between Huckaby and Cecile Hernandez of France with less than half a second separating them.

The Osaka native also won bronze in Monday's snowboard cross event in his Paralympic debut.

Martin Fleig of Germany won the event with a time of 49:57.2, followed by Daniel Cnossen of the United States at 50:42.7.

"It's so surreal to think that I'll be carrying the nation's flag and representing all of Team USA", Masters said.

"Everyone was improving their time in their second and third runs, so I knew if I messed up on my third run I would miss the podium. I'm so excited for her".
