The 2018 Winter Paralympics are headed back to Korea and, along with it, a number of U.S. teams hope to either maintain their streaks or earn redemption.
For the first time in three decades, the Paralympics return to Korea. It’s the first time they’ve been held in Korea since the 1988 Winter Paralympics in Seoul. Forty-five countries, including the United States, will participate in the March 9-18 Games in PyeongChang in the northeastern part of the country. More than 600 of the best para athletes in the world will compete in 80 medal events covering six sports, including alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, para ice hockey, snowboarding and wheelchair curling. As you might expect, there are plenty of exciting and intriguing and storylines to follow during the Games, including streaks, event changes and hopeful returns.
