Canada’s Mark Arendz claimed the first Paralympic biathlon gold of his career by winning the men’s 15-kilometre standing race at the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The medal was the fourth of the Games for the 28-year-old from Hartsville, P.E.I., after earning silver and bronze in earlier biathlon events and a cross-country sprint bronze. Arendz now owns six career Paralympic medals.
Arendz crossed the finish line in a time of 42 minutes, 52.2 seconds after shooting cleanly at all four intervals. France’s Benjamin Daviet — who won the previous two biathlon golds in Pyeongchang — earned silver, while Norway’s Nils-Erik Ulset took bronze.
