Team USA Adds More Medals in Monday's Winter Paralympic Competition


Competition in the 2014 Paralympic games in Sochi continued on Monday and Team USA added to its medal count.

Two of those medals were won in alpine skiing. In the Women's Super-G, eighteen-year-old Stephanie Jallen won a bronze medal for Team USA. Marie Bochet, who won gold for France in the downhill, won a second gold medal in the Super-G, with her French teammate scoring the silver.

In the Sitting Super-G, American Laurie Stephens won her second bronze medal of the games. In this event, Germany scored the gold, while the skier from Austria claimed the silver.

And, it was a close game, but in the end, the US wheelchair curling team fell to host nation Russia by a score of 6-to-5. This puts the American team's record at 1-and-3 in group play.

With several days of competition yet to be played, Russia continues to dominate the medal count at 24, including seven gold medals. Meanwhile Team USA and Ukraine are tied for the second spot with seven medals each, followed by Canada and Japan.
