A Look at Team USA in the Paralympics on Tuesday


Competition in the 2014 Paralympic games in Sochi continued on Tuesday.

In the men's 12.5 kilometer sitting biathlon, American Andrew Soule came in fifth place, with no less than four Russians in front of him, allowing the host nation to sweep the podium in that event.

The United States wheelchair curling team scored their second victory on Tuesday by defeating Finland in a close match of 7-to-6. That brings their record to 2-and-4 as they prepare to face China.

It was a close game that came down to the wire, but Russia defeated team United States 2-to-1 in their final round robin game of ice sled hockey on Monday, this means that United States will now face Canada in a tough semi-final match.

And, looking at the medal count, Russia continues its dominate strength at the top, with 34 medals, Ukraine moved to second place with 11, and the United States and Canada are now tied for third with seven total medals, things could still change though, as competition continues through the 16th.
