The Canadian Paralympic team captured four more medals on their last day in PyeongChang, bringing their total medal count to 28 — a new national record.
They surpassed their previous record of 19, won at the Vancouver 2010 games.
Mark Arendz, the Para nordic star, led Canada into the closing ceremonies last night, he won five individual medals and one silver in a mixed relay.
In her first Games, 18-year-old Mollie Jepsen from West Vancouver skied her way to four medals for Canada. She was also responsible for claiming the country’s first medal of the games.
The record was bittersweet, as the para ice hockey team won silver after being defeated by the U.S. in overtime.
Canada sent 55 athletes to the Paralympic games, the country’s largest winter delegation ever.
The next winter Paralympic games are set to take place in Beijing in 2022.
