PYEONGCHANG 2018 PARALYMPIC WINTER GAMES
March 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - March 18, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
March 9th – March 18th 2018
The 2018 Winter Paralympic Games, officially known as the XII Paralympic Winter Games, will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
One of the most heated rivalries in Paralympic sport is expected to take place on the last day of the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games on 18 March. That is when the gold medal match of Para ice hockey will be held. Of the eight teams in PyeongChang, North American foes Canada and the USA are in a league of their own.
Their last major face off was at the 2017 World Para Ice Hockey Championships A-Pool, which also acted as a Test Event for the Games back in April.
Canada can take confidence from those Championships after they defeated the USA 4-1. But the USA got a measure of revenge when the two met again at the World Sledge Hockey Challenge, beating the Canadians 3-2.
But the biggest prize would come in March, with the USA aiming to defend their Paralympic title against the reigning world champions.
